Scavenger Hunt #249 - Dec 13 to 21

Hey all, hope you find time to fit in some sketching, I know you are all busy right now. Think of it as relaxation therapy. And look I've even done the list for you so not too much thinking involved.

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 HERE ...(go to the last post...)






Here are the rules for the hunt:


1. ALL items must be sketched from life, not imagination or a photo reference.


2. Each object you draw can count for only one item on the list, no matter how many shapes/parts/colours that object contains.


3. 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.


4. 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.


5. Do as many or as few of the items as you like. You don't have to finish the entire list to participate.


6. The Scavenger Hunt "week" will last for 9 days, with the next hunt starting on the 9th day.


7. Please tell us the 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.


8. If you have some hunt sketches completed but little time to read/comment, please post your sketches anyways. Commenting is appreciated but not necessary.



To begin....

hollow
socks Challenge 1 do some on, off, rolled, folded, etc
wooden
kitchen appliance
utensil/s

Challenge 2 - use pointillism to depict one or more items

Have fun, relax and enjoy.

No idea. I hunted in the recycle bin where deleted threads go and it has vanished - poof!
I have made a new hunt hosting schedule thread and I invite you each to go sign up again (or for the first time!) in the new thread.

Cheers,
