Scavenger Hunt #545 - June 10-18 2018

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/show...6#post21360136


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!

2. - Bottom of something
3. - has complex outline
4. - has simple outline
5, 6, 7 - 3 overlapping objects

Robin, thanks for the new list! I’ve got a sketch for ‘hanging’ and ‘plant life’ started.

Joan, beautiful flowers! I particularly like the sense of light you captured in the second sketch.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #545 - June 10-18 2018

Hi everybody,
I had again a bad week : internet interrupted ! There are electric reparation in my street ! Now everything seems ok again.
Thank so much azulparsnip for hosting. Ecouraging list to sketch. I am new here as you may know.


Joan : admirable !I will learn wc by looking at your works !
Here is #1,2,3 : overlapping fruits (:-)). A4 format. 40 mn or so... Very clumpsy. WC is not my usual practice. What I am learning is living model (quick pencil pen or chalk)

Re: Scavenger Hunt #545 - June 10-18 2018

Joan, I like the folks at the restaurant, makes me want to be there.

Van An, the fruit makes me hungry and we have no fruit. Going to the store later, thanks. Ha.

WP, too bad we can't share some of the rain and give you a break. Maybe the drink will help!

I sketched in the big book with a Prismacolor 03 yesterday morning and never posted.... sigh. Number 1,2, measuring tape and pliers.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #545 - June 10-18 2018

Joan - love the new approach to watercolors you are calling direct….lush effect. Another lovely outdoor cafe scene……like the loose building edges rather than ridgid

nguyen01 - glad you are here…..love the basket detail and all the color mapping on the fruits….especially like the detail on the basket joints and weaving….you did a great job of keeping and using the whites to good advantage…..nice

White Pen, Hi ho, hope you can put your rainchecked inspiration to good times ……

Jo - tools and teams……two down to earth pleasures……nice simple but concise drawings

I had the “ho-hums” until I was about half way thru these drawings and really enjoyed it….thought 30 minutes had passed but was only 15…..so this drawing time was better than doublemint gum…..you know, double your pleasure, double your fun…..but then they often had twins in the add …..aaahem……that was back in the day…….moving right along…… …..aaahem……that was back in the day…….moving right along……

Included photo of little camping lantern. New purchase.....got it on sale and went back to buy one for a friend and found out it was alot more than I would have spent at regular price....but VERY nice little lantern......


Back of Ukulele
bottom of camping lantern
complex outline
simple outline
3 over lapping objects.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #545 - June 10-18 2018

Robin - Thanks for hosting and the creative list.
All black? That is changeup. Line work is great. Love the ukulele and lantern. Also like how your line work captured the tension of the hand holding the lantern

Joan- Both florals are pretty but the lighting on the pink one is super. Nice work on the architecture and sign.

An - fruit looks nice but basket weave really caught my eye. Well done!

Jo - nice line work on measure and pliers.

I did two sketches this morning. Both in HB graphite. Together about a half page in 9x12 in sketchbook.

1 needlenose pliers
2 has capital letter on it. McD’s coffee cup. Had a tough time with diagonal dots on a curve and kind of lost my way.



Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #545 - June 10-18 2018

Robin, I like your sketches so much. Joe is right about the hand and all black. I'm smiling.

Joe, the pliers are ready to pick up. Maybe the coffee cup is a bit bent.

I sketched with pastels, trying to warm up for the summer. On the back of another sketch on what is probably Daler-Rowney paper. It is nice. Smooth but holds pastel.

Number 3, bottom of something
