Scavenger Hunt #503 - July 7 - 15

Scavenger Hunt #503 - July 7 - 15

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/showthread.php?t=366347

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. ***

I searched way back and am recycling the list from the first scavenger hunt I hosted which was #73 Feb 2 -10 in 2008. Here is a link to that event: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=474931

Thanks, Joan. Looks like I can find some of these items. I will have to check and see what I sketched the last time! Before the fire so may be different!

Robin, congrats on being first with your classic "Robin" sketches. Love the face with the glasses and the toothbrush with the bonus holder. Cute coin purse too. No water skiing here unless you do it in the rain. lol

Re: Scavenger Hunt #503 - July 7 - 15

Thanks, Ai.

I participated in a garden tour in Port Jefferson. Each garden was assigned an artist to work in. The homeowners were really nice and bought both paintings.
5 - local landscape - watercolors
6 - something that begins with T (trees) - watercolors

Re: Scavenger Hunt #503 - July 7 - 15

Hi everybody. I keep looking to see what's going on, but not sketching! I'm smiling at what I see. Robin and Joan are the sketching machines this Hunt.

Robin, spectacular start. Your face is great with your morphed toothbrush and container. Always appreciate your hatching. You are going to town. The watercolor technique is so much fun. Are the tables in the coffee shop where you do the signs? Complicated designs. Sigh.....

Joan, excellent finds, too. Yummy jam and super simple sketches with that. The landscapes, gardens are so fine. Good to sell!
