Scavenger Hunt #519 - Nov 12 - 20

Scavenger Hunt #519: Nov 12-20

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 #519 - Nov 12 - 20

Hi, Jo!

Today I went out for a while and I passed this lady putting decorations on a tree down by one of the local marinas. So I pulled over and sketched her decorating the tree. Then another car pulled up with what I assume was her husband with more stuff to use to decorate. He left and came back again with a small boy. They put him in front of the tree and took photos. I was busy doing something else while I sat in my car, but when I looked up again the lady, man, boy and all the decorations were gone. I figure they must have taken photos for their Christmas card. lol

1 - something from nature - watercolors and ink
2 - something man-made (building)

Joan - Nice plein air sketch and a cute story.

No stories here. Although you mentioned Christmas cards, I did finish my Christmas card yesterday. Now have to photograph and print.

1 Pair of something - pair o& pill bottles.
2 something near - box of tissues
3 sweet - Honey
4 sour - bowl of sauerkraut
Graphite in 8.5x5.5in sketchbook. (Pill bottles are filled with cp, but photo is b&w)



Keep sketching
Joe

Thanks, Joe. Nice sketches. Love the texture on the honey jar. Nice shading on these. I did a painting for my card and sent it to be printed. I'm trying to get an early start. lol
