Scavenger Hunt 535 March 20-28 2018

Welcome to the Scavenger Hunts!

If you've done at least one Scavenger Hunt and have time to host one, we'd really appreciate it! You can sign up by posting your name and the current hosting list stickie on Artwork from Life forum: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=366347


Rules for Hunting:

* All items on the list must be sketched from life--not imagination nor 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 to by unanimous vote among the participants
* You may place multiple objects together in a drawing or painting, and may count those objects as separate list 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 them, 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! You don't have to comment on every post, but comment, if and when you can.

Scavenger Hunts 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 to do each sketch. We love hearing about your subjects and setups. Photos of your subjects are also welcome!

EP - Nice work on crumpled paper. That is a real challenge. I keep looking back at the petals on the african violet. They really pop. Strong confident lines.

Re: Scavenger Hunt 535 March 20-28 2018

Ai, love your cylinder and the colors!!

EP, beautiful shapes on your African Violet. Good on the crumpled paper. It should made it easier to draw it with lines, but it sort of complicates it, doesn't it. Good job....

I sketched with the Bastrop Sketchers which was only me today. Another friend went but we missed each other. Sigh... None of the sketches fit here unless you stretch trees to plant and I choose not to. Ha.

Ai, Joe, and Jo - thank you.

I did another study of the lined crumpled paper. I find it soothing getting lost in the details. HB pencil on printer paper. Around 15 minutes.

Re: Scavenger Hunt 535 March 20-28 2018

item #1 - "old"

a 3D birdhouse refrigerator magnet

from the 1990's

from Hallmark, by artist Marjolein Bastin

(background and color palette from imagination)


I posted the beginnings of this sketch on the last hunt, but the bird, etc., was missing

I've been struggling to be able to get a combination of loose and detailed. Can't do it in apps the way I used to be able to with Painter on a computer. There just isn't the range (even with Procreate) that Painter used to give me. So it seems to be so somewhat of an either/or situation. Still, this was a lot of fun.

Turned into kind of a happy grunge bird I guess



Tools:

iPad Pro, Apple Pencil.

Procreate app for the sketch and background.

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


Process:

Virtual pastel on virtual craft paper.

Freehand, no drafting tools or tracing, digital or otherwise.

No grid or smoothing or symmetry or cloning, digital or otherwise.

No filters or effects. No color intensification or exaggeration.

Reference located a few inches away.
