Scavenger Hunt #523 - Dec 14 - 22

Scavenger Hunt #523 - Dec 14 - 22

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 #523 - Dec 14 - 22

Joe, thanks. I brought the poinsettias the other night and they needed water so badly they were drooping. I didn't want to water them and then take them out in the freezing cold.

Robin - Thanks.

EP -

Jo, looks like you are ready for some serious wrapping. The only gifts I've wrapped are ones I had to ship.

3 - outdoor scene - watercolors and ink

...nice list Joan, and sweet snowman eyeing the cookies. Like the Christmas tree scene.
Jo, my studio is full of Christmas prep and wrap parafunalia, well done on the pen pic...
1. Indoor scene, a decidedly dodgy digi of our lounge, with building stuff, packing boxes and unfinished chimney...

Morning all! Thanks. Wow a colorful thread this morning. Love it!

Joan, great on the tree shopping scene.

Scatty, hi there! Wow ambitious indoor scene. Well done with digi! We have been talking about how much longer it takes, do you find it does as well?

Ai, love your sketches. Yummy veggies and happy Santa. Clever for baking. Three generations for your journal. Cool. Pretty Ribbon (one of my favorite Christmas songs)
