Scavenger Hunt #263 - Apr 3 - 11

Scavenger Hunt #263 - Apr 3 - 11

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/show...366347&page=33

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. ***

Nice list. Not going to be able to get many of those in a still life. Well unless I do some verrrrrry creative thinking.

Done in my giant (11x14 inch) Thai kido sketchbook in wc and ink.

#1 eyeglasses


#2 economy -- Iris's piggy bank in a rice-cooker shape


#3 educational -- a Thai book of how to find the best Primary school for your child


#4 edible -- a local tropical fruit of Thailand.


Not sure I will get to do more before we leave for the US. but I'm really glad to get these quickie ones out now.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #263 - Apr 3 - 11

Looks like we are moving slowly here. I think some of the items require lots of thought and searching. lol

Jeanne - I am sure you can work some of these into a still life.

Ai - Good sketch of the eyeglasses. Cute band! I like the book cover...is it really informative? Good job on the fruit.

Robin - Good to see you. Love the hatching on your items. Good view of the earring. Love the full look to the bag of soap nuts.

This first one is a portrait I did with my group. Luckily the model was wearing glasses.
1 - eyeglasses - watercolors

2 - East End barns (painted in plein air out east of me) watercolors

Re: Scavenger Hunt #263 - Apr 3 - 11

Thanks all for your well wishes for the trip.

Joan: Thanks. The educational book is helpful but we choose the school that close to our home and decent quality based on our common sense anyway... we did not do anything fancy with Iris. I just give her access to my gazillion art materials. You did wonderful skin on the portrait, the light in the barn scene is wonderful also. Nice details on DVD.

Bonnie:
Thanks.

EP:
I thought I just saw your challenge added later. Anyway, all my sketches were done directly in pen, no pencil first.

Robin: Thanks. You are my inspiration too... I always wonder how to get funky wonderful lines like you did. Fabulous, soap nut bag, egg carton, earing.

J: Hi.

Will leave for the airport in five hours .
