Due Date: January 13, 2018

Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
Number of Cards: 4:4
Number of Participants: Unlimited
Media: HD/HP

HD/HP Trees of All Seasons

This swap is for hand-drawn/hand-painted trees. The idea is that you will draw/paint one tree in each season: winter, spring, summer, and fall. In return, you will get one tree from each season.


Swap Requirements:


Original artwork: Hand-drawn or hand-painted only (no additional media)


Standard ATC size: 2.5 x 3.5


4:4 (hostess cards are never a requirement, but would be treasured)


Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope. I am going to do my best to swap effort for effort.


Please make sure your cards are sturdy.


Each card needs to be in its own protective sleeve.


Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each ATC.


No problem if you need to withdraw, but please communicate. Neutral itrader will be given to those who disappear.


Mailing:


US Participants – Please include a legible SASE. One forever stamp is enough. I will add extra postage, if needed.


International Participants - Please include a mailing label with your address clearly written or typed. I will provide an envelope for returns for all international players. Please include a well concealed US dollar bill or US global forever stamp.


Please make sure to package your card securely. We don't want these wonderful works of art to get banged up in the mail.


When you are ready to send in your cards, please send me a private message.
Also, please post when you send in your cards, so I can be on the lookout.


Make sure your cards are mailed in time to be in my hands on or before the due date.




It is always fun and inspiring when artists share their cards in the thread, so feel free to do so!

When you receive your cards, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received cards from.

Yes, trees can be hard to draw. There is a tree right outside my dining room that has the most gorgeous yellow-orange leaves, but if I painted a picture using that color it wouldn’t look real

Sorry alrice46! Great minds think alike. If it makes you feel any better, your first swap can only be 3:3, so doing all 4 seasons wouldn't have been possible. But, I'm glad you are joining us! Welcome :)

I love your cards, Ann! How clever to do the same tree in different seasons. For some reason, I never considered that. I was thinking of doing very different trees that you might expect to see at their best in a specific season. Is that ok, Prex?

prex79
11-29-2017, 05:39 PM
As long as there is a clear indication visually of the season, you can do it either way.

Thank you for the compliments ladies. I thought they looked a little pale in the photos, as I used pencils this time (though the leaves are watercolour). I'm trying to improve my pencil skills (plus my current addiction seems to be buying watercolour pencils). I now have a huge range, but I love playing with them.

I did a set of embroidery trees using the same basic shape and different techniques, that's what gave me the idea for using the same tree for each season. The hostie is a surprise though!

Spring and summer are done using pitt artist pen and copics. The tree in the autumn card is pitt artist pen and watercolor pencils, and the sky is copics. Winter is pitt artist pen and watercolor pencil.

I'm going to have this swap archived. People should still be able to leave rep points for the artists they received work from. If you're not sure how to do it, please pm me and I'll try to help you.
Thanks for playing, everyone.
Also, if anyone is interest, I'm hosting an altered Jenga block swap. The link is in my signature below.
