The original Watercolor Wizards PIF was begun by ingmarpema in conjunction with the Watercolor Wizards social group. The idea is to post and claim cards in this thread and discuss the materials, techniques, questions, etc., in the social group.

To Play:
1. Accept the offer of a card from the player before you, and post a picture of the card you are offering in the same post in which you claimed the card you wanted. Note: To make this easier, it is recommended that you add a few w/c cards for this purpose to your gallery, perhaps marking them as pending or not available. Also note: you are making a commitment to watch the thread and if your card isn't chosen in a week, to post another card.
2. PM the person whose card you have claimed, giving them your address, so they can get the card to you.
3. The next player will indicate that they will take your card and in turn will offer a card for the next player.
4. The process will continue by playing it forward with hand-painted, hand-drawn watercolors.
5. If your offer stays on the pif for 7 days with no one claiming it, you will be required to offer a different card or cards. Also note: you are making a commitment to watch the thread and, if your card isn't chosen by the seventh day after your post, to post another card ON OR BEFORE the seventh day. You must continue to post new cards (at least one new card each 7 days, if not sooner) until one of your cards is finally claimed. Note: if you fail to do so within 7 days, your iTrader may be affected.
6. It is HIGHLY recommended that you subscribe to the group so you don't miss out on great cards.
7. IMPORTANT: If you must offer a second card, do so in a NEW POST.


Guidelines:
--- All cards must be mailed within two weeks of acceptance. If for some reason there is a delay, communication through pm is a must!
--- Itraders will be given between traders, please keep this in mind.
--- This is a international PIF, so be prepared to mail internationally. Protect cards by mailing in a plastic sleeve and a greeting card, cardstock, or cardboard.
--- Please send PM for address - don't post in the thread.
--- Note: this is not a chat thread. Feel free to give details about the card you post, but responding to others should be via PM, visitor message, rep, etc. Discussion of techniques, critique, etc., should take place within the Watercolour Wizards social group. A comment now and then is ok, but always link to the card up for grabs so it doesn't get lost.
--- You may not claim two cards in a row UNLESS three days have passed since you last played (either claimed a card or had one of your cards claimed).


Card Details:
---Any handpainted and handdrawn OR traced OR *lightly* rubberstamped water media is welcome, watercolor, gouache, acryllic used like watercolor, watercolor pencils, pen/ink, etc – please do your best work and post it to the thread. Post a card you would want to receive.
---You are encouraged to post large enough for viewers to see details, but please do not post so large that the entire card does not fit on the screen without side-to-side scrolling.
---Cards must be sturdy. Use a backing on your card unless you use illustration board or 140 lb watercolor paper.
---This is a watercolour workout, so work your skills! Do your best work, plan your card, use good technique, etc. Newbies are more than welcome - if you are worried, pm me (Jean) or post to the MEDIA: Watercolor Enthusiasts' Best Efforts social group for help, advice, critique, encouragement, etc. While cards needn't be created specifically for this thread, please offer ONLY your best work, not a quick watercolour practice or a card that didn't work well enough for a 1-1 trade or a swap. Emphasis is on working your skills, so post great cards that show what you can do!

I offer a watercolour floral, Yellow Crockery. The edges of the painting are intentionally irregular, as I used torn tape to give a deckle effect. Note that at top left, there is a scanner flaw which is not on the card.

06-30-2011, 12:39 PM
I'd love it, Jean. You made me laugh with your abbreviation of watercolor paper. My mind immediately read "water closet" paper. I looked at your address - do they call bathrooms water closets in Canada? Then, repurposed water closet paper? How could you mount something on toilet paper? At least it was repurposed and not reused! Boy do I need a vacation!

Hey Art101...I will take your pretty flower. I am offering this mermaid titled "Pretty in Pink" This was an exercise in restraint as I am trying to achieve a softer watercolor touch with less ink. Not entirely successful...but I think she is a pretty little thing. I hope someone else will, too.

Thanks for following up, Ceejay, and a friendly reminder to everyone else that it's a good idea to have some cards ready to post or uploaded to your gallery so you can easily link to or post your card immediately when you accept an offer, which is the procedure in this thread. Thanks, all...and back to ceejay's pretty bluebird!

Kiddio55, I'll claim your wonderful Rainy Goth Goodbye, and offer Purple Bunch.

The colors of my ATC are nicer than the scan shows, the background is a very pale green with negative painted leaves.

[I have a new scanner (it is the exact same model as I had before), but now when I post to this PIF thread my card is tiny. Any hints on how to make it larger? I am saving the scan the same size as I did before, approx 400+ KB.]

Okkay, so tomorrow is the 20th of Dec and I have to replace my atc for the watercolor wizards, so here is my third offering. I think this one should stay up until after New Years because everyone is so busy. Anyway, does anyone need some colorful carrots for the reindeer?

I need to change my offering ... I showed this card to an irish friend of mine and it turns out, she recognized the castle from her childhood in Ireland ... so, of course, I had to give it to her !

Note: we had a little glitch, so the sailboats are the current offer, as of Feb. 9. Thanks, all!

Also, housekeeping note: If/when members must change their offering, PLEASE delete the post with the old offering and make a NEW post for the new card. This will bump the thread, making it easier to find.

The area that is appearing white in the center of the sky, and dipping into the ocean's horizon, is actually yellow. My scanner isn't picking up the color.

Jean
04-03-2012, 08:00 PM
Housekeeping Update:
While this thread has been no-chat to this point, it is now open to relevant discussion regarding the current offerings. Feel free to ask questions about the card, the style or techniques, etc., as long as you remember to copy and paste the View Current Offering line with the post number (see upper right corner) of the post showing the current card up for the taking.

When you accept an offer, you can omit that line, but the next person will have to include it giving the number of your post. You can see how that will work because the line is beneath my comments.

This will help us to share our skills as well as draw more attention to our thread. That's good news! :jiggy:

or were you just commenting?

Jean
04-22-2012, 12:11 AM
From the first post:
1. Accept the offer of a card from the player before you and offer a card to the next player in the same post in which you claimed the card you wanted. Note: To make this easier, it is recommended to scan and save a few w/c cards for this purpose to your gallery, perhaps marking them as pending or not available.

Until a new offer is posted, the last one is up for grabs. Rachel, if you are claiming the card, please put up your offer as without an offer the card is still available.

Remember: it's a good thing to have a few cards in your traded/unavailable gallery ready to post in the thread so you can snap up your choices! ;)

topacelot
04-22-2012, 02:24 AM
I was claiming ceejay's and offering one from me.

Jean - Sorry, I wasn't clear on that. It's not clear that a picture of a card for offer needs to be posted. Just seemed that it needed to be mailed within 7 days. ceejay might have already sent. I plan to upload a card later today, most likely a bunch of flowers.

It's not clear that a picture of a card for offer needs to be posted.

How about adding (underlined):

Accept the offer of a card from the player before you, and post a picture of the card you are offering to the next player in the same post in which you claimed the card you wanted.


Feel free to ask questions about the card, the style or techniques, etc., as long as you remember to copy and paste the View Current Offering line with the post number (see upper right corner) of the post showing the current card up for the taking.

OK .... then, Topacelot to post today her picture (post #96). :)

Jean
04-22-2012, 12:56 PM
Thanks, Nancy. Change made! Rachel, it was in the first post, but the post had been changed when I offered to take the thread - I don't think you were active when the discussion took place.

Rachel, when you upload your card, please don't add it to your former post, just put it into a reply so it'll be the last post in the thread. That bumps it up, as well, so we may get some new players - that's always fun! :yes: Thanks, y'all!

Not everyone goes to the WC PIF "Group" (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/group.php?groupid=10&gmid=28348#gmessage28348), so I am going to repost here what I wrote there, as it is about this PIF.


Perhaps with such limited action in the WC PIF right now, it is an appropriate time to tweak the rules to affect the participation in playing. In the past two months, we've only had 6 players who have "played". Currently there is a rule that we should think about updating:

Current:
You may not claim two cards in a row; wait until at least two other cards have been claimed before jumping in again.

Change to:
You may not claim two cards in a row until at least three days have passed since you last played (either claimed a card or had a card of yours claimed).

I think increasing the usage of the PIF should be encouraged, and three days is plenty of time for players to be checking out the thread if they are actively participating. After three days it could be opened up to everyone to play (and not be leaving out the previous two players).

Thoughts?

Up for play #226.

Thank you, mariloupatch! I'm so glad you could offer several cards to cover the weeks while you are on vacation.

Since you mention it, it's a good time to remind folks that PIFs are handled like a trade. If you are not sent the card you claimed, FAQ says to handled it like any trade that is not completed:
PIF (Play It Forward) - Leave a iTrader for the person that sent you a card/item
For example:
PIFs should be given iTrader - Because someone has agreed to make you a card and you have agreed to make someone else a card/item (even though they aren't the same person, it is still a commitment.)

Also, from FAQ:

Negative iTrader in PIFs:
When a time limit has been set for a item to be accepted or changed, the thread starter may issue a negative rating for any player who holds up the thread by not offering another item.

In the happily distant past, the thread has bogged down for a long time - look in the forum for other PIFs that have wound down and finally stopped. :( We don't want this fantastic thread to go that route, so that means vigilance from us all.

A thread like this works when 1. People offer their best cards and keep their offers updated and 2. People subscribe to the thread and keep checking for goodies to add to their collection.

To help it run most efficiently, PLEASE have several watercolor cards ready to upload any time you take an offer. That way, if you have to change your offer, you're ready to go. If you have to be offline for a time, it's a good thing to offer enough cards to tide you over, so to speak, till you're back home in your studio ready to paint new ones if needed.

Finally, any host or threadmom who has given a neutral or neg iTrader knows how agonizing it is. It ain't fun to send friendly reminders and it for sure ain't fun if iTraders are at risk. It is, however, worth it because YOU are worth it and AFA is worth it. And so, onward and upward! ;)

Thanks for understanding. Please note that discussion takes place ONLY in the Watercolor Wizards social group, which is open to all. Discussion posts will be deleted to keep the thread focused on the art!

Current offer: posts 269/270 - your choice of ONE card.
