Scavenger Hunt #560 - Oct 8-16

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...366347&page=57


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!



here we go with another hunt......I hope you get time and much happiness from this opportunity

4,5, 6 - three items, one in front of the other

Hi EP, Jo, Joe and any lurkers -

EP - ten extra points for being first outta the gate…..ahhh, looks like you have your sewing tools out…..the bent straight pin made me chuckle…..Poinsetta makes me feel queezie cause Christmas is getting closer and closer thought now I have stepped back from all the family environment (Children are all grown up) it is not so hectic……

I hope we get to do some sketching tommorrow……good evening, dear friends.

Robin - thank you! Yes that bent straight pin used to be straight until it lost an argument with the sewing machine

Joan - that seascape is wonderful!!

Re: Scavenger Hunt #560 - Oct 8-16

EP - Nice group of sketches. I am going to go out on a limb and guess sewing is another hobby.

Joan - bother paintings are nice but the colors on that seascape are gorgeous. Can almost taste the salt breeze.

Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #560 - Oct 8-16

EP, lovely sewing things. Looks like you are making Christmas gifts. Nice.

Joan, your trip was fun with all the pumpkin items. Love this one and that you put in the flag!! Lovely sea coast, your doing great with gouache, too.

I sketched in the big book with a Prismacolor 03.
Number 1,2,3 - three things in a row, cushion, box, bag
Number 4, parallel - the tiles and shutters.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #560 - Oct 8-16

Joan, Oh, I love the purples in your pieces….and how amazing is the depth and movement you portray in the ocean!!!! AWESOME

Joe- lots and lots of parallel lines………the cushion, bag and box look so casual but so correctly weighted, I like the way the bag looks loose and relaxed…..

Ep, thanks and hi!

Robin, I love the two color sketches, makes them exciting. You have clever objects, too. Beautifully done.

I sketched in the big book with a Pilot fountain pen. I wrote Pilot ball point on the second, habit, I use the Pilot Ball point in my travels. Ha.

Number 5, bulletin board type - my rain gutter shelves above my computer
Number 6, hanging on wall
