Re: Scavenger Hunt #262 - Mar 26 - Apr 3

Fabulous sketches everyone. I don't have time to comment individually but they really inspire me, in such variety of medium and approach. We have not packed to leave to the USA yet, and I have lots of works to finish before the trip but last night I finish this Hunt and two challenges in about 3 hours. Here they are:

The first two images were done in my Fabriano Vanezea A5 Sketchbook


The cicada sketches were done from a dry husk found on a tree in neighborhood garden. They show three views including 'Top' and 'Bottom'.



The following images were done in my 6x8 inch Japanese sketchbook




The 'round' thing is my tiny compact face powder.


The 'Textured' thing is my small natural sponge.


The 'smooth' thing is one of my marbles.




The bottle in the still-life below is a Japanese sake liquor. The real bottle should be much taller, I messed up its proportion into the French Perrier. It is a gift from our Japanese friend. The man-made was my apple-shape kitchen timer.





The plane was my kid's soft pillow. The first one was done with wc & ink. The second one was done with a thick sepia graphite pencil.




Done !!!

Joan: Thank you so much for hosting this Hunt.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #262 - Mar 26 - Apr 3

You will see that I have been sketching and not posting so you will have a few to see. About my usual. At least I got some done. All in the brown sketchbook with a Micron 05

Number 12, in the ground and Number 13 above the ground.



Number 14, old - my Blanchard spurs that burned in the fire. I wrote a story about them on my blog. Number 15, smooth - bowls that were burned but nothing stuck to them. Number 16 textured - a little chile pot with all sorts of stuff stuck to it, even the spoon.




Paul, I love your drawers and razor. Great perspective on the teapot. I like the lamp and the clip. Those clips always seem to be something easy to sketch for me and then the perspective throws me off. You did well. Then you got into color. Some great choices again. Love the flower and apple.

Bonnie, yummy asparagus, a favorite. Great ideas for your items. Thanks for sharing landscapes of your area. Lovely red tomatoes.

Dominica, great still life. I think I could go for brandy and nuts together.

Hi, Kivrin. Your sketches of the doggies are so good. Make me smile.

Joan, hard to sketch when you can't see. Nice rocks. Interesting salt shaker bottom. Must be glass. Yummy beer bottle, too. I'll have to pass on the beer and go for the wine you have once in a while. Cute Bunny. Your landscapes are super. Juicy red tomato. I'm off for a snack now. Tee hee.

Tresgatos, your saguaro sketch/painting is great. You should post it in the Southwest forum if you haven't. Nice bunch over there, too. Good teachers.

Ai, such great work. I, of course, like the mugs for my collection. It is really growing again. Ha. Cute airplane. Excellent on the book inside and out. All great choices and well done.

Stephanie, BearStar, welcome if I haven't already said so. I love your old bottle. Nice to see you! You have a great blog and some beautiful work.


Thanks all y'all for the comments. Joan thanks for the Hunt. Had fun. See you on the next.......
