Yes. The first one on this site produced my avatar. It was a In The Style of Brian Froud, kinda
It can be done either way
I am wondering.. since we have artist PAT swaps.. do we also allow swaps in the theme of one artist? I ask because it does not seem to be done.. or maybe because there would not be enough intrest in just one artist?
I just adore Laurel Burch's work and would love to see ATC's done in her style... should I wait for the next artist PAT and jump in requesting her? or would there be someone willing to host a swap on her style? (I dont have enough trader rating to)
forgive my ignorance...
I love to trade
We had an amazing series a few years back. Art History 101
I know EraserQueen is a big Laurel Burch fan so I'm sure she'd be interested!
I wouldn't mind doing an Art History series again with long dead masters if anyone feels like hosting it.
Actually, I've been eyeing that one
I had one going during that same time on different mediums, was thinking of doing that over again too. I think there may be interest.
I don't want to hold them monthly though, like both were originally, though 3 months might be too long. Does two months sound reasonable?
YAY! I made the swap! http://www.illustratedatcs.com/forum...ap-Due-July-21
My preference is old masters so I can get some acrylic painting practice in but I'll participate depending on the artist. Why limit to American painters?
I'm more interested in the art than the nationality of the artist.
There has to be some kind of limit... All before a certain time? Only impressionists? Etc.
I began thinking this could be started in old pre history then progress, to get a flow.. A lot of the previous swap was European (if not all. I'd have to review) "American" would be North & South American. That's still A LOT of painters to choose from. Also, I thought of John Singer Sargent ("master" enough for you? ) but I don't want to make it so hard that very few sign up ( a problem the previous swap had... At least twice, maybe 3 times, it was me and Livia, and maybe one other)
I'd like to avoid that. Instead, just make it a learning process.
Has NOTHING to do with Nationality. No politics. These swaps could last many years... Why NOT do it in batches, instead of willy nilly?
Go for it Meran!!!
