    Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh: Due August 9, 2019

    Swap due date: August 9, 2019

    Number of cards: 3 for 3

    Number of participants: 25 maximum

    Another inspired artist swap. This time it is Vincent Van Gogh. So much potential with this creative artist.

    A self-taught Post-Impressionist artist. Post impressionism extended Impressionism while rejecting its limitations: they continued using vivid colours, often thick application of paint, and real-life subject matter, but were more inclined to emphasize geometric forms, distort form for expressive effect, and use unnatural or arbitrary colour.

    Here are some of works:
    https://www.artsy.net/artist/vincent-van-gogh
    https://learnodo-newtonic.com/van-gogh-famous-paintings
    https://www.artspace.com/magazine/ar...erpieces-54526


    Make three different Van Gogh inspired cards. The style and medium can be the same for all three or you can mix it up as you choose.

    Medium: Hand-drawn or painted medium

    Use your artistic skills and feel free to use your imagination and unique style. All cards must be original (i.e., no prints or copies).
    Most of all---Have fun!!!

    Requirements:

    *All cards should be standard 3.5” X 2.5” and at least one layer of card stock.
    *Cards should be flat enough to fit in plastic sleeves.
    *Send cards in plastic sleeves.
    *Withdraw early if you can’t do the swap, late cards may be returned if they can’t be swapped out.

    Mailing and postage:

    *PM me for my address when you are ready to send cards.
    * Make sure your user name, location and swap name appear on the back of your ATC’s.
    *Include your username on your SASE.

    * International participants: I will pay postage for first 10 players. Please include a SASE.

    *US participants: Include a stamped self-addressed envelope or stamps


    Returns: When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for me and rep points for players.
    An extra card for the host is always appreciated but not required.

    Anyone want to play?

    I’ll lurk for now. Sounds exciting, but I’m trying to whack out the cards for swaps with sooner due dates first! Are these supposed to be cards resembling paintings that Van Gogh has done, or simply taking his style as inspiration? Either way, sounds fun!

    Any way you are inspired. You can definitely take his style as inspiration and a starting point. Have fun and hope you sign up.
