Scavenger Hunt #600: Aug 25 - Sept 2

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. ***

Here's the list:


Scavenger Hunt #600: Aug 25 - Sept 2

abracadabra - something magical
banana
curly
dandilion or other weed
elegant
fibrous
gigantic
hollow
identical
jokester - makes you laugh
kit of something - sewing kit? bike repair kit? plein air painting kit?
lever
machine
noble
orange
preposterous
quirky
racy
steel
telephone poll
umbrella
vanity
welcome mat
exam
zipper


Challenge: work directly in ink, maybe use your non-dominant hand

Above all, have fun!

Cheers,

Hello, Ai, good to see you. Since I was late sending out a hosting reminder I thought I'd post a list quickly this morning. Hope to see your sketches soon

EP, thanks for the Hunt. Maybe I can get the umbrella and table sketched again and right!

Ai, hi there. Love the happy pink umbrella! Nice work. The teapot is just super and I like that you showed the WIP. Beautiful.

Hope to sketch, far behind on posting blog, etc. I did paint 2 paintings yesterday!

Ai I am always impressed you can draw with a mouse! Nice work! The teapot is gorgeous.

EP - Nice set of sketches I especially like the curved folds/edges on the umbrella and the hatching on the handle. It is all line yet cloth part looks soft and handle looks hard.

Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #600: Aug 25 - Sept 2

Thanks Jo, Joe, EP for your kind comments.

Jo: Fantastic paintings I saw on your FB. Keep them rolling.

EP: Fun group of sketches, nice phone pole, and love the shoes... I can't wear that type despite their gorgeous look, I have soft spots on my ankles and heels and I flip over easily ... so now I mostly wear walking shoes...

#3 welcome mat ... done with Walnut ink (from our late friend's Kivrin/Elizabeth) and brown small marker pen.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #600: Aug 25 - Sept 2

Joe - thank you

Ai- thank you. Those are comfy shoes. I tried many on, including several that looked good and my feet said "no". These my feet said "yes" to, even though my wallet had other ideas. Well done on your cute doggie welcome mat!!

Hello everybody.

EP - Thank you very much for the list. Great ink sketches!! The umbrella and the pole are my favorites.

Ai - I'm impressed with your MicrosoftPaint skills, I only use it to resize pictures. Nicely done on the mat and the teapot is wonderful. Thanks for sharing the WIP as well.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #600: Aug 25 - Sept 2

EP, great sketches. I like the umbrella and telephone pole. I looked at your shoes on the link and now I get the ads on facebook, instagram, etc. :-) Better than some ads I get.

Hi, Joe.

Ai, the doggie welcome mat is cute. Thanks for looking at the paintings.

Hi, individuo.

Hi to the rest .....

I sketched in the living room with feet propped up on the leather couch. I'm learning how to get out of it now .. not easy. On my iPad with Brushes Redux and my Apple pencil and fingers.



And photo of the cabin and the big tree.

individuo - hello and thank you

Jo - thank you. Sorry about the ads. I have adblocker so I see no ads on any site. You could go to your browser history and clear history and cookies on that day? Oooh that is one fantastic log cabin. I hear you about difficulty getting out of certain furniture From the photo those trees look like something along the BC/Alberta mountain region. Where is the cabin?
