Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Ai, yes, the smells bad made me laugh, too. The others are great and so interesting. I love the smell of the coffee shops, too. I never heard of black spaghetti either. I would like the squid part. Oh, Happy Mother's Day.

Good day to all the rest. I need some food now.

Thanks EP & Jo: Thai Mother Day is actually on Aug12 of every year but today we were making a joke to ourselves that today dinner was for that event, plus we don't like going out on the very crowded actual day. .... BTW black spaghetti is spaghetti made with black squid ink... such in this clip and this one.

Ai - wet and dry chalk. Neat. Hand is cool. Pruner line work is excellent. Your campus has everything. Gardens. Art. Coffee machine. Add me to the list laughing at Smells bad. Not sure about black spaghetti but the squid looks good. And Happy Mother’s Day when it gets here. We do the same celebrating early or late to avoid crowds and bad service on the actual holiday.

Jo - Nice work on the latch. Clever idea to get nail and palm. Nice line work on bead and porch. Tire threads got me. I seriously thought the pastel was a reference photo.

EP - Nice watercolor. Good find copying Ai 😎. The 3 views on pulley is just showing off.

2 looks light. Also borrowed from Ai.



Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Jo and Ai - Thank you for the encouraging words.

3 door latch. Half page in 9x12 in. Sketchbook. Used HB and 5H graphite. Gave up after a half an hour frustrated trying to get a polished brass effect.



Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Joe - thank you. I'm sorry if it seemed I was showing off - I drew it three times to better understand the item. Great job on the softness of the feather Super door latch too. You are so good at graphite work!

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

#11 tire treads -- of a construction tractor parked at our campus ...I wish I have more time to sketch it better ... I was shy in sketching it in the middle of campus as people walking by around me; I would feel more at ease sketching things in campus if no one notice me sketching...

EP: I think Joe was kidding you . It is great that you have pulley in your easy views to sketch.... after all we all are here to show/share our art...

Joe: Nice take on the door latch... despite you feel frustrated a bit

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

EP, definitely meant it as a joke. Just teasing. Sorry if it offended you in any way. When I first looked my reaction was “Oh wow, tough item and she did it 3 times”

And besides ....this is the place to share and ‘show off’ our art

Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Thanks, all y'all.

Joe, the door latch is great. Hard to show in black and white, you did well.

You are all show-offs! Evil grin.

Ai, super treads. Easier to see on a large wheel. Applause.

I sketched at the physical therapy office while waiting for Gene.

Number ?? Feels light, the paper on the bulletin board.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Hi all! Just back from a trip to Amsterdam for the USK Amsterdam 2019 and then a short trip to Paris. I have found it is just too difficult to post on WC and a lot of other sites from my iPad when I travel. If I have my computer with me it is a different story. Catching up at this late date is too difficult. I am hosting the next hunt which starts tomorrow so I am giving Ai and anyone else who is ahead of us the new list so they can get started. Hope to see you there over in the new thread. For some reason I can't seem to get the URL to link correctly...sorry!
