Scavenger Hunt#488 -- March 9-17, 2017

Scavenger Hut #488 Mar 9-17

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:
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=366347

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.
Please note commenting is not required. Comments and chat are always welcome but if you don’t have the time or inclination, feel free to simply post your images. (You can also comment on only the last page or two, if you like.)

Re: Scavenger Hunt#488 -- March 9-17, 2017

item #1 - fun/funny

started out as a sketch of a cat toy (an orange ping pong ball)

Sorry - I thought it would be fun to sketch one of my cat toys. I've saved them all even though all four of my cats are invisible now. But I've been away for a long time, and I was just goofing around, and, perhaps inevitably, my orange cat toy turned into an abstract sun. I didn't mean for it to happen that way, which is one reason it's hard for me to do the Scavenger Hunts - even when I start from a life subject, before I know it there's something completely unplanned in front of me. So, if you are unhappy with this, please contact a moderator to have it taken down, since it started from a life reference, but didn't remain precisely true to that reference.



Tools:

iPad Pro, Apple Pencil.

Procreate app for the sketch.

Art Studio app for the crop, border, and export.


Process:

Virtual acrylic.

Freehand, no tracing, no grid, no smoothing or symmetry or cloning

No filters or effects. No color intensification or exaggeration.

Reference located several inches away, until it rolled onto the floor

Pine Cone - I love your fun story about how your drawing evolved from a cat toy to the sun!

Ai - Great faces of the girls! They are starting to look so grown up.

Wayne, very nice on the lamp and brush. Clever idea for the brush!

Pine Cone, excellent ball, looks like a pastel! Nice to see your work.

Ai, great job on the girls. You have great memories!

Joan, I like the bowl, cup, etc. Cool mug for me! Fun dessert and great people.

I didn't sketch. Life in the way. Maybe tomorrow.

Hi to all the rest......

Re: Scavenger Hunt#488 -- March 9-17, 2017

Thank you; Ai, Joan, Jo, and Pine Cone. I'm enjoying looking at all of your artwork. Joan congratulations on finishing the One Week 100 People challenge.

I haven't done much with watercolor, so I thought I would try to get some practice. Plus I got a new tool to play with. This thing is going to take some getting used to, but it was fun playing.



3. Cup (watercolor) This is small.. about 2 by 2 inches (5x5 cm). On my monitor this is much bigger than in life.


4. Spoon (watercolor and some ink)
