Scavenger hunt #247 - 27 Nov to 5 Dec 2011

Hey all
GET READY TO HUNT

If you've participated in at least one Scavenger Hunt and have time to host one we would really appreciate it. You can sign up by posting your name on the Current Hosting Schedule HERE ...


http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show...366347&page=29


Here are the rules for the hunt:

1. ALL items must be sketched from life, not imagination or a photo reference.

2. Each object you draw can count for only one item on the list, no matter how many shapes/parts/colours that object contains.

3. You may place multiple objects together in a drawing or painting, and may count these objects as separate items, but no single object can count for more than one item.

4. All items posted must be numbered. Count them as you go. The first item you post will be #1 regardless of its place on the list. Do them in whatever order you wish, but count them in the order in which you sketch them, from 1 to 26.

5. Do as many or as few of the items as you like. You don't have to finish the entire list to participate.

6. The Scavenger Hunt "week" will last for 9 days, with the next hunt starting on the 9th day.

7. Please tell us the size, surface, medium, and the amount of time it took you for each sketch. We love hearing about your subjects and setups. Photos of your subjects are welcome.

8. If you have some hunt sketches completed but little time to read/comment, please post your sketches anyways. Commenting is appreciated but not necessary.




GET OUT YOUR HUNTING BOOTS AND GO SEEK...

Too late to edit now but after the #26 challenge not just to MAKE the sculpture but to DRAW it from life after wards. I'll see if a mod could edit it for me....

Re: Scavenger hunt #247 - 27 Nov to 5 Dec 2011

Hi,

I did most of these with a local brand ink pen (water soluble kind), and Coran D' Ach wc pencils. The ground was a 6x9 inch Aquabee sketchbook.

#1 natural -- a luffa



#2 from the woods -- a feather of a blue bird found in a garden
#3 spherical -- a marble
#4 cylindical -- a film canister
#5 favorite thing -- Werther's Original



#6 It helps me relax -- my little duck collection


#7 jewellry
#8 mask -- my cool gel eye mask
#9 old -- my Vermont playing cards bought in 1988

Re: Scavenger hunt #247 - 27 Nov to 5 Dec 2011

Looks like we are off to a slow start!

Ai - Great group...love the luffa, that duck (who looks like she's pouting) and the deck of cards.

Jo - So glad for you! I hope we get to see photos (or sketches) of it soon.

Lin - Hope the doc can make you more comfortable!

1 - cylindrical - pencil
Challenge - a sort of sculpture with my tape, scissors, a sticky lable, a pen and pencil.

2 - thrown away (onion skin) - watercolors and ink
3 - from the woods - watercolors and ink
-
4 - from the seashore - watercolors

Re: Scavenger hunt #247 - 27 Nov to 5 Dec 2011

Lin hope you get some relief for your arm soon. I am sure we all really appreciate your efforts hosting when you are not feeling good yourself. Thanks.

Ai good start, and so many done already. Love the feather, favourite thing and cards. Very nice elipses on cylinder.

JO so glad to hear you are in your new place. Hope you settle in quickly and get to relax and enjoy it.

Joan awesome onion skin and cone from the woods. Another lovely seaside landscape. I can't see your sculpture though....

I did some sketching last night but only one for the hunt. Got distracted sketching the cat who was sleeping on the bed. I never used to feel confident doing them from life so is a real change to be taking every opportunity now. These hunts have done wonders for my drawing and confidence. Is strange I would much rather draw from life than a pic now.

Re: Scavenger hunt #247 - 27 Nov to 5 Dec 2011

I sketched a little but too late to take the photos. Lin thanks for the list, sorry you are still having problems, get well soon!

Ai, I just love your playing cards, from the woods and all. I like Werther's too and forget to buy them. Hope the teething goes by quickly. Way back 40+ years ago there were some little "pills" about as big as a mustard seed called Humphrey's Number 3. They were chamomile and you put a couple under a baby's tongue and it helped so much. You might find something similar in an herb store.

Joan, lovely onion skin. Never thought I would say that. Heh. Nice pine cone, too. And of course the little boat house. Cool sculpture and label on the cylinder. Good idea for coiled. No whisk here yet. Ha. The leave, plant and flower all look very natural. You definitely can count the Christmas music at the tree sale. Nice sketch, too. Beautiful flowers.

Joe, what a nice little pot. I like the coiled, I have plenty of cords around, too. Nice ornament. Fun to have the memories, eh? It looks carved to me.

Jaqui, I use pen 'cause it is fast, too. I rarely sketch with anything else. I hadn't thought about lava lamps in ages. Nice work. I like the hatching on your kitty. Your ornament is different. I thought of Christmas ornaments.

Vivien, hi there! Ooooh. Forget that it is springtime/summery for you. Beautiful flowers. Look at you go! Love the shell and twist in the vase. Poor little reject! Love your choices.

"J" the Oscar Meyer whistle is neat. Never saw one. I will now have the tune on my mind. Beautiful cross and well done.

Kivrin, hi. I love the reflection and you did some great ellipses on your bottle! Congrats on that!

Bonnie, beautiful leaves and nuts. Your harlee-quin made me laugh. Well done. Nice sea shore items and cylinder.

Janet, welcome to the Hunts. Your sketches/drawings are lovely. The Christmas ball is great. You do lovely shading and lines. Nice work. I'm always looking for different pepper mills for our daughters collection, thank you! Nice feather and ornament. Are sand dollars good luck for getting real dollars?? Ha. They are fun to collect.

Hi Stepanie, welcome to you, too. Excellent sketches. Nice reflection. I haven't seen any jingle bells yet this year. Nice work.

We are going to look at a desk I saw on Craigs list in the morning. It is a corner desk and table would be nice to have table space for pastels and storage for papers. He has a desk part, too, so maybe get all of it for my studio. I'll let you know. Right now all my supplies are on the floor or in boxes, still. Soon I can show photos! We went to Penney's yesterday to get some towels and bath rugs. I forgot it was Saturday and 3 weeks before Christmas. What was I thinking? Well, obviously I wasn't. Ha. Nice to have things, though. The crowds didn't bother that much in the bedding dept. Heh, heh. Thanks all.
