Hello all, this Hunt will be around Literature Theme.
. That's right, I have chosen the list of good literatures from various authors, and possibly various periods. I have to admit that I am far from being a literature guru but I do love to read or at least try to read. I have read some of the items in the following list or watch a play or a movie version of it. I hope you all can enlighten each of us by interpreting the Hunt item from a particular literature in your own style and sketch from it
. Be it, if you just take the word literally out of a title and sketch, or an illustration, or you have read it and feel a certain impression of something and you decide to sketch from that thing. The interpretation of the items is a bit challenge in itself.
However, if you need to learn more of these literatures, you may start at:
Pardon me for including Shawshank Redemption, which is the very contemporary work of Stephen King. It might not be in the literature list yet, but many people agree with me that it is a truly remarkable tale.
Thanks J for hosting the previous challenging and wonderful list.
Please don't feel obligated to comment on EVERYTHING...we just like to see your sketches......
If you've participated in at least one Scavenger Hunt and have time to host one, we'd really appreciated it. You can sign up by posting your name on the current hosting list in the Art from Life forum:
In case you don't know them already, here are the rules for the Hunt:
*All items on the list must be sketched from life - not imagination or 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 on by unanimous vote among the participants.
*You may place multiple objects together in a drawing or painting, and may count those objects as separate 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 then, 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! The Scavenger Hunt "week" will last for 9 days, with the next hunt 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 welcome.
Please note commenting is not required. Comments and chat are always welcome but if you don’t have the time or inclination, feel free to simply post your images. (You can also comment on only the last page or two, if you like.)
