Lets Face it Challenge 2018
Last year we ran the lets face it challenge and challenged you to paint a pre-selected portrait and the results were amazing! So this year we are going to change things around. This year you wont be painting pre-selected portraits of people from the internet, you will be painting each others portrait!
That’s right this is a selfie challenge with a difference. Each participant will be asked to submit a “selfie” of themselves and when the challenge starts each participant will be allocated another persons photo to try and paint a portrait from.
Don’t worry if you have never tackled portraits before, no one is expecting a mirror image of themselves and in my case the person will be lucky if the eyes, nose and mouth are in the right places! It isn’t a case of who can paint the best likeness, its merely a fun challenge to give you an introduction or further practice of portraiture.
In order to participate in this challenge it is essential that you submit a selfie (photo of your face) to this email address:
When taking a selfie on your device or with your camera, it is important to remember that someone will have to paint the image you capture, so a little check that there is ample light in the room etc. A photo similar to a passport photo is all that is needed, up to you if you smile of course!
The challenge will begin on February 17th and run for 7 days – Entry to the challenge must be made via the email address above before February 10th (to give me time to process the images and create the gallery)
I hope you will all join in on this new take on the Lets Face It Challenge and lets see if we can make this years as successful as last!
