Scavenger Hunt #528: 23 - 31 Jan

Scavenger Hunt #528: 23 - 31 Jan
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!

Jo - that is not the first time I made up a word. Your fruit in the shiny bowl is so wonderful

I sketched yesterday but the sketches did not come along to where my camera was.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #528: 23 - 31 Jan

OMG. What is this WOW week?

Jo - Pastel is beautiful. Love how you developed the shiney metal and banana colors are spot on!

EP - That post looks like a reference photo of 2 matching dingly dangly fish!

You two have set the bar high for this hunt! Beautiful!

Joe

(Can’t say ‘Keep sketching’ cause those do not look like sketches.)

Re: Scavenger Hunt #528: 23 - 31 Jan

duh. Sorry Scatty and EP. Will blame being overwhelmed by paintings by jo and Scatty lost track.

Joan - Nice portrait. Not sure who it is but reminds me of a nun I knew in Rhode Island. What size is that? The plaid pattern looks like something I would avoid You did it well.

EP - neat touch adding color to the continuous line blind contour sketches.

Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #528: 23 - 31 Jan

item #1 - "quick"

cat toy

I still have cat toys all over for the spirits of my cats.

This was an experiment with a different app, so a weird mix of different things. Whoops, forgot to finish the shading I snuck in the colors of all of my cats, and also my horse This was just a doodle for fun, but sorry for shattering the bar into pieces



Tools:

iPad Pro, Apple Pencil.

Paper by 53 app for part of the background and sketch.

Procreate app for part of the background and sketch.

Art Studio app for the downsize, crop, border, and export.


Process:

Virtual pastel and virtual ink on virtual panel.

Freehand, no drafting tools or tracing, digital or otherwise.

No grid or smoothing or symmetry or cloning, digital or otherwise.

No filters or effects. No color intensification or exaggeration.

Reference located a few inches away.
