Scavenger Hunt#534 -- March 12-20, 2018

Welcome to the Scavenger Hunts!

If you've done at least one Scavenger Hunt and have time to host one, we'd really appreciate it! You can sign up by posting your name and the current hosting list stickie on Artwork from Life forum: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=366347


Rules for Hunting:

* All items on the list must be sketched from life--not imagination nor photo references
* Each object you draw can count for only one item on the list, no matter how many shapes/parts/colors that object contains. This was agreed to by unanimous vote among the participants
* You may place multiple objects together in a drawing or painting, and may count those objects as separate list items, but no single object can count for more than one list item.
* All items posted must be numbered. Count them as you go. The first item you sketch and 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.

Do as many or as few items as you like; you don't have to finish the entire list to participate! You don't have to comment on every post, but comment, if and when you can.

Scavenger Hunts last for 9 days, with the next hunt starting on the 9th day.

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

Re: Scavenger Hunt#534 -- March 12-20, 2018

item #1 - "an architecture"

a 3D birdhouse refrigerator magnet

from Hallmark, by artist Marjolein Bastin

(background from imagination)


I don't have time to finish this right now. So it is missing the bird, and the shading, and the textures, and all that good stuff. Sorry.

I'll try to get some time in the next few days to finish this up the way I wanted to and then post it again. Realistically, I don't know if that will happen.

For now, just pretend there is a bird perched here



Tools:

iPad Pro, Apple Pencil.

Procreate app for the sketch and background.

Art Studio app for the downsize, crop, border, and export.


Process:

Virtual pencil on virtual craft paper.

Freehand, no drafting tools or tracing, digital or otherwise.

No grid or smoothing or symmetry or cloning, digital or otherwise.

No filters or effects. No color intensification or exaggeration.

Reference located a few inches away.

Robin, love your sketches. Your style of hatching and the complementary colors make them have movement. Fun!!

Jo - Good storefront and service station...and some people too. Interesting shape to that bottle.

Robin - Nice shading with your combined colors. Great handles on the fork and spoon! So interesting.

I'm off to a slow start.
1 - architecture - watercolors and ink

Re: Scavenger Hunt#534 -- March 12-20, 2018

Joan, I like your Irish pub and the red building! My water bottle is taller and the squares is a silicone cover (salmon color) to protect the glass. The pot is from Peru, I paid the price of a pretend antique, $5 or $10, but you never know as the pots there were like tin cans, just everywhere -- could be ancient. It is now ancient as it survived the fire and I bought it over 30 years ago. Ha.

Re: Scavenger Hunt#534 -- March 12-20, 2018

Good sketches, Joan. I'm always amazed at how strip malls survive. Some in Austin have been around forever .. same stores. Here in the small town the renters are always changing. Guess they can't find their niche.

Our gasoline prices are lower, about $2.139 a gallon at the moment.

Happy St. Patty's Day, we are going to our daughter's for her husbands birthday celebration from last Saturday. No green beer or corned beef and cabbage. He is having a fish fry!
