7th Annual Portrait Swap is underway over at WetCanvas. The deadline for signing up was the end of October. And once that passed, the admins paired up folks randomly and you got a partner to exchange photo references, paint and swap portraits with. The work this year and feedback has been of a high standard. This link will take you to the fabulous work in their various stages on display in this thread.
My partner on this adventure is Max and you can see his take on me on his blog, Silver and the Birds. He’s done a fabulous job and soon it will be winging its way to sunny Colombo!
Here’s where I’m at today on his portrait. I had great refs to work with.
And I’m almost done. I’ll put in some more work on the hair, sweatshirt and background over the next few days. Below are some progress shots so that you can see what it went through to get here.
