    “Three ways”, Hand Drawn/Hand Painted: due November 5, 2022

    Swap Due Date: November 5th, 2022
    Signup/Withdraw Date: Anytime, but please communicate
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: 30
    Medium: Hand painted/hand drawn; mixed media elements can be added. *See note in description.

    In this swap, choose a subject and a composition (could be from a reference, direct observation, or imagination) and interpret it/render it in three different ways. You may choose three different mediums (ex. ink, colored pencils, watercolor, etc.), three different artistic styles (ex. impressionistic, realistic, whimsical, cubist, expressionistic, etc.), three different color palettes, three different backgrounds or foregrounds, or any combination of these. The idea is that the main subject and its composition in the card is the same, but the cards are not exact copies and that there is enough difference between them to call them different interpretations.

    Ex. My main subject is a vase on the right side of the card, opposite to a window on a wall.

    One card shows the vase made of clay and holding some flowers. You can see a field in the distance through the window and the wall behind the vase is plaster.
    On a second card, the vase is the same but it’s painted green and there are no flowers, a city scape is seen through the window, and the wall behind the vase is brick.
    On a third card, the vase is the same shape and size but metal, the vase and the window are floating in space and an open sky with clouds is seen behind both of them.

    Or

    All cards have the clay vase with flowers, plaster wall, and view of a field through the window but one card is in watercolor and whimsical, another is colored pencil and more abstract, and the third is ink and realistic.

    Or

    All cards have the clay vase with flowers, plaster wall and view of a field through a window, all are realistic but in different mediums.

    Any of these would work as would anything in between. The combinations are endless …



    These are some examples with the medium as the main variation from piggles and LuAnnP:

    piggles


    LuAnnP


    (Another example by jezebelle of a variation by artistic style can be found a few post down this thread)

    * Note about adding mixed media:
    ~ You can include mixed media elements in your cards as long as the main subject is HD/HP.
    ~ One of your cards can be in full mixed media, with or without drawn elements, as long as you don’t use a photo/sticker/found image as the main subject (e.g. If the subject is a vase, don’t use a picture/sticker/image of a vase to portray it, but you could use paper strips or cutouts of other images to make the vase in your composition).



    Card guidelines:
    ~~ This is a 3 for 3 card trade.
    ~~ Cards need to measure 2.5" x 3.5" and must have a sturdy base to make it a “card”. (If you are new to ATC’s and swaps, please check the FAQ section of this website for more guidance.) Keep them as flat as possible. No bulky embellishments.
    ~~ Protect your card in individual vinyl sleeves.
    ~~ Add a title or description to the back of your card that points out the card variation: ex. “Vase in watercolor” or “Impressionistic Vase”
    ~~ Include your username, real name, where you live and name of the swap on the back of the card.
    ~~ Please share your finished cards in this thread and in the gallery and tell us more about them and how you got to them. We all love to get inspired by your lovely creations and process. Also comment on those you like. We can all use some motivation.
    ~~ A hostess card is not required, but will be appreciated and treasured if you choose to include one. Please don’t let the hostess card be a factor in your decision to play or not play.

    Mailing:
    ~~ PM me for my address when your cards are ready to send. Give yourself enough time for them to arrive, at least a week or two for those in the US. At least two weeks or more if outside the US. Cards which do not arrive by the deadline will have to be returned.
    ~~ US Players: Send a large label with your name and address clearly printed on it. Include as much loose postage as it took you to mail the cards to me. Usually one "Forever" stamp is sufficient for three cards. Check at your post office if you are uncertain. I will provide envelopes. Please, *do not send envelopes*
    ~~ International Players: Send a large label with your name and address clearly printed on it. I will provide postage and envelopes. Please, *do not send envelopes*

    Visit HOW TO: Pack & Mail your Cards for Swaps (atcsforall.com) for more guidance.


    Don’t forget to give You-Rocks to the artists whose ATCs you received and an i-Trader for me if you are pleased with how I handled the swap.

    It occurs to me, that not too long ago, I did a sort of experimental version of this for one of NancyL’s color swaps.
    Here they are…

    A5DA1907-696A-4271-95DD-18DE9DA6C253.jpg

    Sarah - primarily acrylic paint and pigment liner, with a wee bit of prismacolor pencil in the background

    5DA6EA60-C3F0-453D-99C8-76E11DB18C70.jpg

    Sarah II - primarily prismacolor pencils with some pigment liner

    Sarah III was a cubist take on the portrait, done in prismacolor pencils
    I don’t have a photo of that one at my fingertips, but I will come back and add it if I can can find one.

    Welcome LuAnnP and vidas! Can’t wait to see what you both make for this swap.

    LuAnn, yes please link examples of your previous work to the thread. I’ll also link it to the first post as examples as we talked, along with card I have in my collection by piggles (I just need to take the picts of hers). Thank you both for allowing me to do that and for joining the swap!

    Here are two examples of this concept, that I've done for the swaps.

    Prismacolor Pencil, alcohol marker, watercolor, charcoal
