Scavenger Hunt #573, Jan 20 - Jan 29

Welcome to the hunt!!

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:
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=366347

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.*

Re: Scavenger Hunt #573, Jan 20 - Jan 29

Ai, I haven't tried the pen yet. I ordered a converter for it and that hasn't arrived yet. I don't want to put in a cartridge and then have to take it out. I'll try to remember to let you know how I like it.

Thanks for your comments everyone!

EP, looks who's first. Well done on the comfy blue slippers. I still haven't used my Pan Pastels much.

Joan clever finds. I like your sketching nook, always good to sketch when you are comfy.

Hi all, going to the doctor for Gene's tune up on his DBS. Seems to be working well and he may get released to work in the shop and yard.

Jo - Good news on Gene.

Ai, Scatty, 9 -

Joan - sketches are all nice especially the fav corner but the ‘sat on’ tissue box made me laugh.

EP - Slippers definitely look warm and comfy. Good use of art supplies as models! Props on bring first!

Keep sketching
Joe

There is another palm, a twin palm, which, after 17 plus years, I still have not identified. The 3 we lost to Charlie were all Queen Palms which like the Royal is very common. We had the Cat Palm in a pot on the lanai and planted it in the ground where we lost a Queen. When we planted it, it was probably 4 feet tall and 18 in across. It is now about 20 feet tall and 10 feet across

Probably TMI but......
