Scavenger Hunt #550: July 20-28 2018

Welcome to the Scavenger Hunts!

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 #550: July 20-28 2018

#2 a poem of shape -- So I wrote and sketched with a poem in a sand dollar shape...done with Intense pencil and ink

.... Poem written by me ...
"I am a round sand dollar on the seashore
When you are on the beach, step careful more.
Cause I'm small delicate and thin and I'm also a sibling of sea-urchin.
But I'm a special flatten class, which easily break like glass."




I hope I do this right ..

Munin - Thanks for the list.

WP - Beer art! Nice work. Hope the morning after is not too bad. Did you leave the art as a tip?

Ai - digi is nice especially done with a mouse. Love the poem and the sand dollar.

Keep sketching

Jeroen, thanks for the list. No time to comment, still in the paint out. Back soon.

Number 1, favorite view - the view of the day. Ha.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #550: July 20-28 2018

M. Raven - really cool list

White Pen - great ballpoint work

Ai - love the digi mugs, oh, neat idea for combining poem with sketch…..OH!!! wow, love the brushes and the red background really makes them pop up and say “Me, Me….pick Me!!”
oh , more direct watercolor sketching…..so nice to see you get to do some art. I save old ink bottles too. The ink bottles now adays are so beautiful….I expecially like the iroshizuku bottles….lots of good quality ink too. So many different inks on the market these days, too, eh….

Jeroen - lovely landscape

Jo - I like all the little glints of color in your sketch…..alot like your colorful pastels..

I visited my daughter this weekend and she is a weight lifter…….and her significant other is into boat building. These are some of his ropes in storage outta the moist.

round and round - wheels on cabinet
In or out (basket drawers)
sshort or stout - stack of weights
1 of a pair....one side of the dumbell

Re: Scavenger Hunt #550: July 20-28 2018

Munin, thanks for the list. Jeroen you get extra credit for my mistake, right?

WP,love the fun. I'll drink to that. Cute poem for short and stout! Your sketches always warrant a smile.

Ai, love the colorful mugs for my collection. Great poem and drawing. I like your gathered with the red. The maze globe is a good find. Nice bottles.

Jeroen, really nice view. I like the variety of greens.

Robin, very cool sketches and clever choices. Like the weights and the cart full.

I sketched on the porch in the big book this morning. The paint out is over so I may get back to a "normal" routine. I don't know how Joan sketches and posts so much when she travels. I am exhausted. Hard on the brain to paint so fast and go to demos, lunches, (bars for wine), etc. Then dinner. We haven't unpacked and gone for groceries yet. Tonight to Taos for supplies and music with Byrd and Street friends from Austin on tour.

Number 2, side by side - pens (and bonus first sketch here)
Number 3, a poem of shapes - house across the way
