The 15th Annual WetCanvas Holiday Portrait Swap -- Pairing, Sharing & Painting Thread

Hi, everyone!

I have done the pairing!

While we have a smaller group this year, I know that everyone will enjoy this annual challenge. We have a good mix of people who have done the portrait swap for quite a few years, and those who are new to it Ė including at least one member who has just joined WetCanvas! Welcome!

I took into consideration the info provided to me (and what I could find out going through the past few years of portrait swap thread that Kevin has kindly posted in the Archives for easy access) of who you have been paired with in the past. I think you all have new swap partners this time.

This year we would really like it if you would share your Works-in-Progress (W.I.P's) and finals here and Ė if possible - a "selfie" (photo-portrait of you and your new painting) upon receipt!). Please post at least your final work and a photo of you and your new painting when you receive it!

Please be sure to thank your partner for their hard work!


Remember the goal is to have these complete and on their way by the mid- December, if possible. So, get your photos sent as soon as you are able! (via personal email ).

and now... drumroll, please....

PAIRS:

SAndypp + floblue

earlselwyn + horsthh

artzul + Amai

Dea + MDerby

rickycorbett + Humburger

Well done setting this up, Lauren. If you want a spare brush you can put me on the subs' bench.

Thanks, Harry!

Thanks for that offer. You are one of the annual regulars -- and always a great addition to the group -- so if you'd like to participate, I can keep you on the bench (as you put it) in case someone else wants to join the swap, or we have a glitch with someone who is already participating. Sometimes something comes up in someone's life and they have to drop out.

Meanwhile, I'm expecting a wonderful portrait swap this year!

Arthur, Go to the 'My WC' page, to 'Private Messages' and send Amai a private message there -- if she hasn't already sent you one. You can exchange email addresses by private message and use email to send each other your photo references. After than, you can do any off-thread private messaging about swap details (such as exchanging mailing addresses) by email and/or WetCanvas private messages.

If anyone else can explain this clearer than I have, please do. Arthur is new on WetCanvas and is still learning how things work (which I can so remember back when I joined).

Okay, here is my first WIP. It is a ROUGH sketch, but at least I got something done. LOL!



I will be doing graphite and white charcoal and it is on Canson Mi-Tientes beige toned pastel paper, smooth side, 12x16.
