I completed another portrait swap. This time with artist Cindy Gray. I met Cindy through Blog Catalog and she suggested that we do a swap. I was thrilled! I had a lot of fun doing a swap with Ujwala so I jumped at the chance to do another swap. You can read about our swap on her blog Draw the Line. That swap was an artist trading card exchange. Swapping with Cindy gave me a chance to work larger.
Here is Cindy’s portrait of me. Wow!
Cindy does lovely work. Do click on the image to see it in more detail. She works digitally, then prints it on canvas. After the canvas is stretched and breathes a bit, she applies acrylic paint to build up texture. You can read about her process here. Check out her portfolio as well.
Thanks Cindy for a great experience. Your portrait is in the mail.
