“International” Portrait Swap

Every year in November, the Wetcanvas portrait forum holds an international portrait swap. Last year, I did an oil painting of Melissa from Michigan, USA.


This year I was partnered with Edgar who studies at Meadowbank TAFE less than 5 minutes from my house! Not terribly international but that’s the way the chalk pastel crumbles.

Hmmm… anyway, here are the progress shots of my pastel drawing of Edgar.

I also did a charcoal drawing of him for good measure:

I haven’t yet received the portrait he has done of me… looking forward to seeing how that turns out!

  3. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Spending some time and actual effort to produce a superb article… but
    what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t
    manage to get nearly anything done.

  4. When persons are stressed and must relax, nicotine can supply the perfect relaxation. They
    constantly are keeping up with the advancement on ecigarette technology and it gives them a heads
    up when it comes to design and style. 5-inch all-weather outdoor LCD TV is a definitely a must-have gadget for every outdoor adventurer who doesn’t want to miss his or
    her favorite TV programs.
