Welcome to the Scavenger Hunts!
If you've participated in at least one Scavenger Hunt and have time to host one we would really appreciate it. You can sign up by posting your name on the current hosting schedule in the Art From Life forum here:
Here are the rules for the hunt:
*All items on the list must be sketched from life - not imagination or photo reference.
*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 on by unanimous vote among the participants.
*You may place multiple objects together in a drawing or painting, and may count these objects as separate items, but no single object can count for more than one item.
*All items posted must be numbered. Count them as you go. The first item you 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 of the items as you like. You don't have to finish the entire list to participate. The Scavenger Hunt "week" will 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 for each sketch. We love hearing about your subjects and setups. Photos of your subjects are welcome.
*** If you have some hunt sketches completed but little time to read/comment, please post your sketches anyways. Commenting is appreciated but not necessary. ***
Here's the list:
Scavenger Hunt #564: Nov 9 - 17
ad - advertisement
inside a drawer or box
jug or big bottle
kitten, stuffed or real
new art tool
oatmeal (or other cereal)
waste or waist
Without pre-planning, sketch a figure you saw yesterday doing something ... friend, mailman, spouse, etc. In other words, don't decide today what you will sketch tomorrow, just glance back a day. This will be sort of like blind contour drawing. Ha.
Use a different medium for a sketch on dark paper.
Do some or all in alphabetical order.
OK, so I'm using one of my old lists. I'm lazy, what can I say. Have fun.......
