Re: The 16th Annual WetCanvas Holiday Portrait Swap: Pairings, Sharings & Artwork!

This is thanks to Kevin who posted this for many years to help us all take good photos to paint portraits from.

Please take the time to take a good photo to send to your portrait partner. Send the largest photo file you can via email.
Watch out for distortion. Don't just take a selfie with your phone...
Ask someone to take a photo from a few steps away and then use the zoom to stop the distortion. Use a tripod or rest the camera on a surface to keep it steady.









can't wait to get started!

Just a quick pencil sketch to "get to know" Horst's face...



I will start on the painting soon.
