Scavenger Hunt # 531 16 -24 Feb

Heya
Welcome to Scavenger Hunt #531 ! Participants who have not had a turn creating a scavenger hunt list for us can do so by posting to this thread.


Here are our rules for this week:
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 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.
Challenges may be done on any of the 26 items, and count as both the item and the challenge.


Scavenger Hunt #531 will last for 9 days, with the next hunt starting on the 9th day.
Everybody who completes the list of items and challenges during that time gets a hug free !

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 # 531 16 -24 Feb

item #1 - "something you [used to] dislike"

Procreate app for the sketch.

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


Process:

Virtual watercolor 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.

Re: Scavenger Hunt # 531 16 -24 Feb

i like goofy!

i like chocolate too
so i had to digi-sketch quickly
or it would just be a wrapper



the best part of using the Lenovo Yoga Book is the penlike stylus
instead of using mouse or finger

Re: Scavenger Hunt # 531 16 -24 Feb

WP, thanks for the goofy list. I'm only about 200 miles from a beach and farther than that from ice, at least today. Guess I can use the edge of the ponds/lakes out back about 500 feet away! Ha, ha.

Pine Cone, lovely and soft.

Stephanie, disappearing chocolate, indeed. Nice.

Off to baseball today.

Re: Scavenger Hunt # 531 16 -24 Feb

WP - I love your idea to make a paper airplane and then draw it!!! I'm working on it right now, but I think it will probably take me several weeks. The reason is that I want to paint the paper myself first. And then figure out how to make the airplane. And then sketch it For me, that'll take some time, but I'm going to keep working on it Thanks for the terrific idea WP

P.S. - To all of you in the U.S. enjoying this three-day outdoorsy holiday, be safe out there, and have fun!!!

Re: Scavenger Hunt # 531 16 -24 Feb

Ai, some good finds on your hunt. The book sounds interesting. I like the green seat. Haven't seen a mascara brush in ages.

Scatty, your simple got a bit complicated! The book looks like I could pick it up and read it. Good job on the bag grids. Wow.

WP, a page of fun. Nice to find the shopping cart and backside!

At baseball I found my daughters boots and sketched in between scoring, about 5 minutes without the breaks. No time to add the people two rows down. Ha. Pencil.

Number 1, boot rest on a seat
