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

This is my first time participating in the portrait swap and only my fourth portrait in recent years. Iím paired with Amai and definitely have a more favorable subject than she does. Hereís my painting from the first two sessions. The photos she sent have a blue and white wall as a background, which I am turning into a seascape since she lives along the coast. Iíve still got a lot to do as the painting so far is only using white, dark green and ultramarine blue.

Every one is looking good so far. I did two quick sketches (acrylic, and marker) and might do one more before cracking on. I am on vacation this week and pumped up to paint

Tom I love the progress shots of the angular start and how it progressed. You really got the planes right!

Amai, those are beautiful! I like the third one, best, too.

As usual, I get about this far along and start doubting my ability to make a good likeness. LOL! Well, here is my latest update:

These portraits are looking great. Plenty of variety of approach and of course in the characters portrayed!
Look forward to following your progress.
