Woohoo #92. Welcome to the next hunt.
If you've participated in at least one Scavenger Hunt and have time to host one, we'd really appreciated it. You can sign up by posting your name on the current hosting list in the Art from Life forum:
In case you don't know them already, here are the rules for the Hunt:
*All items on the list must be sketched from life - not imagination or photo references.
*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 those objects as separate items, but no single object can count for more than one list item.
*All items posted must be numbered. Count them as you go. The first item you sketch and 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 then, from 1 to 26.
Do as many or as few 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 on the 9th day.
Please tell us your size, surface, medium, and the amount of time it took you to do each sketch. We love hearing about your subjects and setups. Photos of your subjects are welcome. And now for the list:
Scavenger Hunt #92 Jul 4-Jul 12
Make a still life with a bunch of junk (as Sue/Bigs from Australia would say…bits and bobs)
Put them in a box or bowl or something and do as much detail as possible (ala Andrea Joseph—
Many examples here: http://andreajoseph24.blogspot.com/
Something grainy or granular Challenge 1: smooth, ribbed, fuzzy, airy
The underside of a stuffed animal
Something new you’ve just purchased
Someone else’s fist
A fancy item
Your comfort food
Something at, in, or from your bank
Shredded, mangled, or crushed
Several different shapes of keys
: draw something that has been altered or is being used for something other than what
it was intended
: Draw something with your pencil/pen in your mouth. Some artists who are paralyzed
do their art this way.
I hope everyone finds at least something on the list that they like, and the challenges...well challenging.
Have fun. Happy 4th for the US. And a good weekend for all.
