Also having no luck using the Uploader anymore. I am assuming it will just be some time before all is back to the norm after the downage.

Drew up Jordan on my 6"x6" canvas and he is ready for painting in acrylic now.

Good stuff so far! I'm still sneezing and coughing too much to get much further than thinking about it LOL

I'm a little confused though... Do you think 'Jordan' is a boy or a girl? My wife is convinced he is a she (of course, I think she's talking rubbish). Please settle this dispute before I end up sleeping on the sofa

Re: Join us in painting and drawing from the same reference! 12-05

Hi all!, I am a relative newbie, having started painting again, two 'finished paintings after a short (!) 30 year break...I have posted the photos of my two works on the still life, acrylic and oil painting forums, but stumbled across this thread....

What an excellent concept...a challenge, but interesting to see how we each interpret and paint our references.

I apologise in advance for the low quality of the pics., my digital camera is not the best!

Whilst my first attempt is not strictly a 'stand alone' piece of original art work, the technique I use is easy and simple, and perhaps interesting enough for others to try out.

I am now working on an acrylic painting of the B&W photo.

Hope you like my first effort....



Edit : I am having difficulty downloading the files, and as I know nothing about computers, I will e-mail the WC mods for guidance....apologies for now!!

no, I think your wife is right, she is a girl! I was wrong too. I just saw the portrait ref in the RIL as a boy, maybe because I had sons on the brain from Terence's other photos. Her top has a purple image on it and another of her poses definately shows she is a girl. Although, my husband's favourite colour as a child was purple. :-)

Yes, the Uploader is not functioning for many members.

Thanks Jet for posting that. I had pasted in Dorice's link into my location field and could go to her URL for the image; once I cut and pasted just the http://etc. etc. part.

Made some changes. The portrait was to much a boy. Made it more a girl now.

I'll try to put a url in. Sorry that is goes to my website. Can't post it otherwise.

Happy painting.

Second attempt at downloading my painting...just read the messages about the downloader not working. I don't have a website...any suggestions/hints as to how I can release my picture on the unsuspecting public?

Re: Join us in painting and drawing from the same reference! 12-05

I have been away for a few days and came back to see all these wonderful portraits of Jordan, my grandaughter. My daughter had 4 boys and then the little girl. After having four boys, I dont know why she picked a name that confuses people.

I had planned to do a portrait of her from that photo but hadnt gotten around to it, so it was great to have it used as a reference for this thread. Made me get off my butt and do it.

Im attaching a photo of how it was coming before I ruined it. I was taking photos of the different steps. I was up to this point and felt I had to add more color to the face, lighten up her expression. and do more to the hair, and blouse. Unfortunately I then overworked it, lost the freshness and likeness and ruined it. I hope I will be able to undo the mistakes or I will have to start over.

Jet, thank you!

This is strange, to keep trying. Must be problems that need ironing out since they changed the server last week. Oh well ...

That's my first portrait, anyway, for those who click on Jet's link showing my version of Jordan (girl!) ... LOL
