Scavenger Hunt #551: July 28 - Aug 5

Welcome to Scavenger Hunt #551! WP might not be around so I'm jumping in to host. This is a list from a hunt I hosted back in 2007:


The list for Scavenger Hunt #551: July 28 - Aug 5


- A newspaper stand or box or rack (bonus: draw two different kinds)
- A waiting room
- Something taller than you
- Something you pass nearly everyday
- A grocery cart or basket
- Piece of heavy machinery or construction equipment
- Someone reading
- Something crunchy
- Something that is one colour on the outside and a different colour on the inside
- A bus stop or shelter
- A set of lockers (at the community centre? The bus depot?)
- Something that smells delicious
- Something you always take on vacation but never use
- Something in your car that you haul everywhere with you but you never use (dig through that compartment or trunk!)
- Vending machine (bonus: draw two different kinds)
- Hanging plant
- The cover of a flyer, takeout menu, or church bulletin
- Fireplace
- Open your electrical box and sketch the inside
- A recyling bin
- Fire extinguisher
- Payphone
- Fire alarm bell
- Shoe with laces
- Sunglasses (or reading glasses) with case or neck cord
- Sewer grate or culvert or manhole cover


Challenges:
1. Insert a foot/shoe into three of the drawings.
2. Try at least two sketches with colour: "Summer" colours if you're in the northern hemisphere; "Winter" colours if you're in the southern hemisphere; and vibrant colours if you're near the equator.
3. If you wear glasses, take them off and then sketch an item - sketch what you see not what you know it is.


Have fun! Cheers!

Thanks for the new list, Eyepaint, and what a great opener (<- because the footwear is, like, on two pages?) Haha. My apologies. That was weak.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #551: July 28 - Aug 5

...nice list, and super opening sketch of the shoe...

1. Something crunchy...this is one of sweet Ruby dogs toys, t'is a dragon, rather a cute one. Don't know what it's stuffed with, but it makes a lot of crackly crunchy noises as she chews on it, and she loves it. A5 pen n watercolour, bit less than the hour...

EP, great opener. Like those shoes.

Scatty, awwww, such a cutie of a dragon.

Robin, your people are so full of life. Great gestures. They make me smile.

I sketched in the big 'ol book with a Prismacolor 01. It took way too long, I see that I quit shadowing the rocks as I gave up. I had planned a basket and fireplace tools but after an hour I decided, no!

Number 1, flyer or bulletin - flyer from a potter and a map of the enchanted circle

Number 2, fireplace

Ai, the lipstick sure catches the eye. Nicely done with a mouse.
