Scavenger Hunt #522 Dec 6 - Dec 14 2017

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!

Thanks for the list. Out sketching at a coffee shop as we have 42degrees today, high of 47! Cold for here. Our second day of winter. Ha. So maybe I'll find a seasonal at least, no Christmas stuff up at my house yet.

If you are at the coffee shop...you should be able to get shopping related too,

My sketches at the coffee shop were quick with a Micron 01 in the travel sketchbook, only 3 pages left after I gave the two away, 4 if you count both sides.

Number 1, seasonal
Number 2, shopping
Number 3, comfortable

Jo, Congrats on being first to post! Love the splash of seasonal color. Cars are tough, you did them well. Nice interpretation on comfortable. So can you fit 23 more sketches on 4 pages?

Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #522 Dec 6 - Dec 14 2017

Well all that digi talk at the end of the last hunt got me thinking digi so used Procreate and this took a little over half an hour on iPad.

1 Something blue
2 Highlight
3 Shadow



Keep sketching
Joe

Edit: Whoops, rule is "* Each object you draw can count for only one item on the list, no matter how many shapes/parts/colors that object contains." so this is just #1 Something Blue.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #522 Dec 6 - Dec 14 2017

We are about to go to the airport and fly to Atlanta, USA in 6 hours... I hope next batch post will be done outside Thailand...

OK, I proctor a short exam today before leaving office for abroad trip, not much time to details but I got:

#1 hair of one student, with a challenge of 3 viewpoints


#2 blue (more of indigo blue) of a ceiling fan in the exam room, with a challenge of using my put-off medium of Derwent Graphitint WC pencils.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #522 Dec 6 - Dec 14 2017

Joe, thanks for the new list. I'm a little slow getting to it. Nice digi of the carafe. You do well with Procreate.

Jo - You are turning into quite the urban sketcher!!! Love the lady shopping and the people having coffee.

Ai - Good sketches of the student during the exam & nice ceiling fan. Hope you don't find snow when you arrive in the USA...it seems to have fallen in quite unlikely places. Hope you have a good trip. Send me your American phone # and I will call you while you are here. Too bad you won't be closer.

WP - You came through with a smile even if the face wasn’t. Fox at bottom really got me. Looks like something out of Disney.

Keep sketching
