Scavenger Hunt #517 Oct 27 - Nov 4

A flashback hunt to 10 yrs ago almost to the day by Beautiful Butterfly Studio.

Rules
*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!*

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!

Joe, too funny! Not a problem. Thanks for the memories...

Joan, your scenes are better all the time. Love the perspective and colors. The view of the house makes it a bit mysterious.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #517 Oct 27 - Nov 4

Joe - thanks for hosting.....cool list.....I gotta be careful though because here in this part of the south people get perturbed if they see you sketching their stuff....like their house or their fence. Also around here it can be kinda interesting to try and sketch people in public too. Big cities are not this way.......


Joan - awesome start .....love the parked cars and fall trees

It is a typo. Should read "*- go for a walk and pick up stuff along the way, when home, create a still life with the found objects and sketch, draw, or paint!"

Re: Scavenger Hunt #517 Oct 27 - Nov 4

Thanks everyone! Having a nasty day weather-wise up here in NY. You would think that would give me ample opportunity to work on the list. lol

White Pen, wonderful very full page of sketches!!! Getting a crick in my neck from trying to see all your little sketches.
