Re: Scavenger Hut #487 Mar 1-9

Thank you Jo, Joe, Pine Cone, and Joan.

Joe, nice sketches. I was thinking of doing a ceiling fan too. What did you use to get that red in your coffee thermos?

Jeroen very nice job on your goldfish. I like the shading.

Joan, nice quick contour sketches. I was struggling with how to depict bare, you nailed it.

Jo, love your blue and red drawing.

4. Used in the shower. Graphite powder, pencil, kneaded eraser. It took about 10 min. and is about 4 inches (10 cm) across.

Re: Scavenger Hut #487 Mar 1-9

25. Something you've touched today.

My car key. My dad drove a BMW 5-series in the '80-s. I loved that car. And when he eventually traded it in for something else, he gave me the key label. I think I was about 14 and I use it on all my key chains since.

3 decades later I bought a classic 1985 BMW 320i to fit the label. I still have both and I took the Bimmer for a ride today.

Last Friday, I went to do figure self-study sketch at Sculpture Hall, Dept. of Fine Arts, Thailand. This place keeps the original masterpieces of Thai sculptures.
#1 bare -- this one is a torso plaster model for fine art reference study


#2 white -- this one is a sculpture of Ferrado Feroci, an artist from Italy, hired by King Rama the IV (almost 100 years ago) to educate all Thai artists at that time to learn of western fine arts. Prof. Feroci, ended up permanently moved to Thailand and established the Thai University of Fine Arts.

Re: Scavenger Hut #487 Mar 1-9

Wayne, very excellent shading on the hair wash.

Jeroen, ummmm, excellent key and chain. We have friends that drive a BMW from the 80s, too. Good cars!

Scatty, you make your drawings look so sweet .. salt is not sweet! Nice to see you.

Ai, great drawings from the sculptures. You are always studying and teaching, an inspiration to us all.

Joe, simple lines and tell the story. Really looks like pencil in real life. I'm smiling.

We are off to breakfast with a friend and grocery shopping. Hope to be back in the afternoon to sketch.

Re: Scavenger Hut #487 Mar 1-9

Joan - Nice SP. Foot and magnifier were good finds.

jo - Love your pastels. The blue glass sings. Gene gets an A+ on shelves. How does he hang them. Thanks for kind words

Ai - Great sketches. Especially like the bust of Professor Feroci. And the background.

Wayne - Love the shading!! You apply powder with finger? brush? I drew the coffee thermos on an iPad and you can create just about any color.

Jeroen - Your graphite work blows me away! and the story adds to it!

Scatty - Nice wc sketches. Cute 'kiss' story. So you found a 'kiss'

Robin - The Family room has a vaulted ceiling so it is long lead. (Over 2 feet.) You are great with pen line work. The new pen is my fav.

Lots of stories today to enhance the sketches!!

Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hut #487 Mar 1-9

Joe - Thank you. The graphite powder was applied with a brush. then I used a pencil to draw the outline then created the highlights with the eraser. Finely I did a bit more shading with the pencil. It was an experiment. If I had read your post more carefully I would have realized how you produced the red color.

jo - Thank you. It was fun doing it.

Ai - Great sketches.

Jeroen - Nice job on the key fob!

Scattykat - Nice water color sketches. The salt packet is impressive.

Robin - Thank you. Interesting observation about the apparent weight of the objects in my drawings. Looks like you didn't claim some items in the list... Something you wear (jacket over back of chair), Made from wood (chair) , flower (on window sill). Others? Love your line work.

Joe, thanks. Nice jar of scrub...bet it feels nice.

Robin, thank you. Love the bedside sketch and your hungry friend.

Re: Scavenger Hut #487 Mar 1-9

Wayne - I think your 'experiment' was a success.!

Joan - the ladies at the library really catches my eye, can't give you a good reason, I just like it. What size brush do you use that you can paint around that lettering and have it legible? I kept staring trying to figure how you could even print so small with a brush let alone do it in negative.

Ai - Thanks.

Lurkers - 👋🏼

Joe

Gene uses the brackets that come with the gutters. Fastens them to studs. A couple for short shelves and more for long ones. He puts the caps on the end so they are closed off. Some gutters have reinforcements inside that divide the length. Not as useful as you have a limit to length of painting or canvas.
They come in a couple of colors. No painting. Inexpensive. He has a couple in the garage, too. Hold spray cans, gloves, fly swatters, whatever...

I saw where someone had put the gutters on a fence or fence posts and put little flower pots in them or just planted right in the gutter. Looked neat, too. Guess you would have to put a drain hole or two in them, right?



Robin, your strokes are so descriptive. Love the kitty and the fan. Comfy room. Smiling.

Joan, what fun and complicated sketches. Good for you!!

Hi to all y'all.

We are helping some friends pack a trailer for moving. Maybe I'll get back here this afternoon.
