Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

The honour is mine this week

These are the hunting rules:
- All items must be sketched or painted from life --- no photo references nor from imagination.
- Be as “creative” with the subjects as you want. Multiple subjects in a single drawing/painting is fine. Count them all!
- No time limit on the sketches… as much or as little detail as you wish.
- Any medium is welcomed.
- All items need to be drawn or painted new from the date this scavenger hunt starts.
- No certain order for completion. Number as you go to keep track of how many you've done.
- Feel free to ad a tidbit about the item and/or what made you select it.
- Have fun

Art Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

1. The first object you touch from a drawer without looking.
2. As #1 but without cheating.
3. Something that someone else picked for you to draw.
4. Your point of view from the spot you are in when you read this.

5. Bottle
6. Opener
7. Glass
8. Coffee machine
9. Mug or cup
10. Pie, cake or cookies
11. Car
12. Bike
13. Camera
14. Phone
15. Musical instrument

16. Easy to draw.
17. Challenge to draw.
18. What you really feel like drawing but is not on the list.

19. Your favorite dish, while cooking, when cooked or when served.
20. All or some of the ingredients to one of your favorite dishes.
*Non drawing challenge: post us the recipe!*

Happy hunting, Jeroen

Re: Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

Jeroen, thanks for the interesting new list!

I had to do this quickly before my husband started to eat this. Today (St. Patrick's Day) is his birthday. He's not much of a cake person...his favorite dessert is blueberry pie.
1 - pie - watercolors and ink
2 - bottle - watercolors and ink (From his birthday dinner tonight.)
3 - opener

Jeroen, I'm hungry just reading this! I'm also in bed for the night so wonder if I'll get a sketch from here. Maybe on my iPad where I am reading it, eh? Thanks for the list.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

This 'car'. It's a 1960's Morris Minor that I found parked next to a canal in Amsterdam. I'm practising for next week when I have my very first sketchcrawl ever in my home town Haarlem. I'm a little nervous to be honest, drawing with 50 other people is way, way out of my comfort zone.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

This is my first one of these...

Joan T: I love the bottle. I've never actually had Stella Artois, but always wanted to try it.

Jeroen: The car is great! I would have stopped to sketch it too if I saw it parked somewhere.

Here is my first batch. The first 3 were done in a tiny 2 1/2x4in moleskine blank daily diary from 2012. I found it in storage with only a dozen entries for the whole year and didn't want it to go to waste, so I'm using it up five years later as a travel sketch.

1. Easy to draw - Wind-up toy, 2 ways, pencil

2. Challenge to draw - My husband swinging my son around at the park today (My other son is inside the caterpillar tunnel). I'm out of practice in figure drawing and I'm not used to drawing moving things in general. pencil

3. Something someone else picked - My husband picked the chili pepper bowl of chips and salsa at the Mexican restaurant where we had lunch, before park time. water-soluble graphite

4. First object touched from a drawer - Clear tape (I didn't cheat, per se, because I didn't look, but I knew the tape was there. The second drawer one will be from a less familiar drawer). Pencil on BFK

5. Bottle. And a bonus bottle because I liked the composition. White ink on gray pastel paper

I'm way more excited about this than I should be probably! It's 2.30 am but all I want to do is finish the scavenger hunt

Re: Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

Joan, I love the pie and beer. Fun. A friend, Jenny Reynolds, has a song called "Whiskey and Pie". Your sketch reminded me of that.

Wayne, nice job on the computer and accessories....

Hi there, Pine Cone and Ai!

Jeroen, super car! I find the non-lines of the curves very hard to capture. You will have fun with the sketchers!

sculptcha, what a great start. The Hunts can be addictive. Some of us have been doing them since 2006. Others come in and out when they need to get back in sketching/drawing shape. It has been fun and have made lots of friends. Moving things are hard to capture. You did well on all the items!

I sketched in the big book with the Micron 01. I read the list in bed and then sketched with the sketchbook on my lap instead of the iPad where I read the list. Oh well, it is the same view. Smiling.
Number 1, Your point of view from the spot you are in when you read this.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

This evening... we went to a newly open neighborhood ramen noodle shop...where I got all these sketches from...all drawn with black ink and brush pens

#1 easy to draw -- a seasoning jar


#2 challenge to draw -- a Japanese good luck charm cat sitting on the counter of the restaurant


#3 favorite dish -- a bowl of ramen or any noodle soup...

Re: Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

Nice work everyone!

This one started as "camera" but ended in "challenge to draw"

The camera is a Eastman Kodak No 1a Pocket Camera. It's almost 100 years old, built between 1908 and 1912. It's in working order and I took photos with it a coupl of years ago.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #489: March 17-25

Some people asked for a step by step last week. So here it is. I took some photos with my phone. Only the final image is a proper scan.

1. Basic shapes. This is basically a box with a pyramid coming out of it. The lid is a nice guide for the ground perspective. The bellows end in the lens, so to get the overall thing right it's key to find the exact end of the bellows. I drew a cross over the base of the bellows to find the middle and transported that line along the ground perspective.


2. So there is the lens (and the shutter and the aperture and what basically is the camera for this Kodak). The lid reaches a little further then the lens. So I drew a line to find the point that lines up with the lid.


3. The hinge is easy. I'm spending too much time with the lens.


4. I'm shading the lens house. I should have started over with the lens instead. It should have been a bit bigger.


5. I started zig-zagging the lines of the bellows from the lens towards the film container.


6. From there I can draw the rest of the bellows. Just follow perspective for the rest.


7. Swithching from HB to 2B. Hatching in the shades first, only for darker colour in the very end. Never hatch randomly. Better hatch along perspective and shape. This is the final image.
