Scavenger Hunt # 509 - Aug 24 - Sept 1

Welcome to Scavenger Hunt # 509 - Aug 24 - Sept 1

This is a repost of hunt 109 I hosted back in 2008.

These are the hunting rules:
- All items must be sketched or painted from life --- no photo references nor from imagination.
- Be as “creative” with the subjects as you want. Multiple subjects in a single drawing/painting is fine. Count them all!
- No time limit on the sketches… as much or as little detail as you wish.
- Any medium is welcomed.
- All items need to be drawn or painted new from the date this scavenger hunt starts.
- No certain order for completion. Number as you go to keep track of how many you've done.
- Feel free to ad a tidbit about the item and/or what made you select it.
- Have fun


The theme this hunt is words that start with the letter E as in eyepaint.


The List:

ear
eye
elbow
elegant
eager
eastern
ecofriendly
elflike
embarrassing
egg
easel
eavestrough
earring or eardrop or earplug
elastic
eclipse (set up two spherical objects and a lamp to build an "eclipse" ) - bonus take a photo of the setup
electrical box
elm or large local tree
email
end or edge
encyclopaedia
endive or other dark green vegetable
engine / engineer / engineered
educate
eavesdrop
endeavor
embrace


Challenge:
Do at least one (and aim for three) list item(s) with your non-dominant hand and use ink

Cheers,

EP: Thanks for the list.

I did look back at Hunt#109 (in 2008), and I got emotional...Cairomom, DancingPopcorn, Marilyn, Julie, Sandy & Beth, Annie etc. left the Hunt ... and Kivrin65 has passed away 2 yrs ago from cancer... I have become so connected to this sketching circle through the years... Glad to keep seeing the familiar faces in these days: J, Jo, Joe, Joan, EP, Robin, and me ... Thankful for the new members to bring more joy to our Hunt: Jeroen, Tim, etc.

Ai, we have made lots of friends. Interesting and emotional sometimes! It has been a great time!

I sketched in the big book with some Microns, one running out of ink. The egg is hard using black to make white. Ha. I took a photo, should have done that first.

Number 1, ear
Number 2, eye
Number 3, eavesdrop
Number 4, egg

Ai -

Jo - Nice ink work. Who is the eavesdropper? Your egg and shell photo is a nice composition. It really caught my eye. With your permission I would like to put that on my to do list to draw in graphite? You should post that photo to RIL. Are you the crypto puzzle solver or Gene? That is a puzzle book no?

Lurkers - Come on it the water is fine.

Keep sketching
Joe

Ai I took that walk down memory lane too. So good to see the art especially Cairomum. And of the 5 pets I listed that I had, only one, Penny, is still living and she is 11.

Re: Scavenger Hunt # 509 - Aug 24 - Sept 1

Hi art buddies. Sorry I did not contribute to the last hunt.

Thanks for hosting Ep. I just love sketching with red ink. That dog face is just like them…a little unpredictable expecially if nose is in the dinner dish. Love the lined shading of the ear. I second Joe’s suggestion of making your next list p’s….(heheheh, he is a “mess”, ….. like we say in North Carolina)

Jo - congrats on first out…..lovely photo of egg on plate….I slid it onto my computer; might be good to use for a pencil study…..like your sketches….the concentration/listening face is great……

Joe——eavesdropper!!! LOL…..very observant! I did not even notice the book in the photo.

Re: Scavenger Hunt # 509 - Aug 24 - Sept 1

Sketching at the movie model cafe near my house. The owner did import 2 shipping containers of many replica models of Hollywood movie characters... Some models are inside glass display cabinet...but this one I worked on is out in the open... easy for me to sketch down...

Today I worked on a model from the Lord of the Rings movie...about (20 minutes)
#1 eye
#2 ear

Re: Scavenger Hunt # 509 - Aug 24 - Sept 1

Hi, Joe, thanks. I am the puzzle person. I like Cryptograms and Crostics best. You are welcome to the photo.

EP, thanks. I love the red sketches. I like the ear and the clever needle eye. Hard to get those doggies to pose.

Robin, thanks. You can use the photo any way. I like that you can't hardly see the front edge of the egg. Hard in ink!

Bonnie and "J", it is interesting to do the walk on memory lane.

Ai, spooky find for eye and ear....

Company leaves tomorrow so maybe post more then...
