Scavenger Hunt #441 Feb 25 - Mar 4

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:

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 we go ... THE LIST

Something yellow - Challenge 1 something in each primary color
Your favorite corner in your home or office
Most comfortable footwear
Something round
Something rectangular
Something triangular
Something you like to wear
A keepsake
Something older than you
Something you received as a gift
Something that symbolizes your community
A quiet place
Anything lit by a single light source from a window
Something reflective
Your shadow
Stuffed animal
Something from a perspective that you donít normally see
Something metallic
Your most recent art supply purchase
Your favorite art supply/tool
Something you planted
Water
Cloud or clouds
Looking out (or in) a window
A rock
Something to reflect the season

Challenge 2: If you normally use line, use tone or color. If you normally use tone or color use line.
Challenge 3: Use a media technique you really like, then tell us why you like it.
Challenge 4: Use your non-dominant hand.


Repeat of first hunt I ever hosted. (#75- Feb18,2008)

Re: Scavenger Hunt #441 Feb 25 - Mar 4

Hi art buddies - sorry I missed the last hunt completely, had list and was poised and then things took a turn, tumble and taddah....here's another day......

Joe, thanks for the list....lots of stuff I love to draw over and over. I'm thinking that the more hunts the more things become favorites to draw. Can't beat that , aey. First time I've seen draw my own shadow on a list. Fun!
Ai - MY!!! how Lily has grown. Her expression reminds me of her Dad.
Isn't yellow a perkie color!!!

Thanks for the list Joe!

A cloud would be easy to draw (can you picture a grey sheet of paper?)

Robin, I went back and checked. You did participate in #75.....but you did not draw shadow. Quickly skimming through I only saw Joan draw the shadow. You did some great pen and ink of your then art corner and a big old cannonball bed.

WP -waiting to see what the imaginative mind does with this list.
Edited: You were too fast! You posted while I was writing. As always your work brings a smile. I love your line work.

Charne - While that might be a realistic view of current over cast sky I think it is cheating,.....oh or "modern" art

Keep sketching
Joe

Joe, thanks for the list.

Ai, your daughters are such young ladies. Love the "yellow".

WP, as always very fascinating. Love the shield, eraser, flip flop and all. Great hatching on the penguin!

Joan, have a loverly time! Hi to your sister!

I sketched in the middle of the night. Home late from baseball and son here so went to bed and sketched one of my old Valentine bears.
Number 1, stuffed animial - with "Brushes" on my iPad and fingers.
