Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Welcome to Scavenger Hunt #597

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 Art from Life forum:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=366347

Here are our rules for this Hunt:

* 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! Scavenger Hunt #61 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 to do each sketch. We love hearing about your subjects and setups. Photos of your subjects are also welcome!



The list for Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09


zipper
pulley
roadway
train tracks
tire treads

wet this item to use it
dry this item to use it
feels heavy
feels light
feels prickly

spring
gears
door latch
fingernail
palm of your hand

sounds good
sounds bad
smells good
smells bad
looks good

looks bad
tastes good
tastes bad
protection from the sun
protection from sharp objects
spherical

again the challenge is to draw something that you personally find challenging. It might be an egg, shoelaces, a spoon

But above all else, have fun!!

Cheers,

Well I did not make my goal to draw every day today but I did spend some time searching for a pulley and trying to decide on the "bad" items.


Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Hi there,

I got out the pastels and painted from the garage. Gotta keep the painting fingers in the dust. On MiTeintes paper, about an hour.

Number 1, roadway - the dirt roadways in front of the house.





Forgot to show my easel and painting in the shot. Next time.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

1 pulley Took a while to find one but wandering in garage I looked up and saw a few. Picked the one on the ladder but there is another pair to store ladder. Image is about 3x5 inch. 2B graphite.





Was very quick as drawing looking up and down got tiresome fast.

Keep sketching
Joe

Hi again!
Joe, thanks. You did a great job on the pulley. Looking up is hard. Nice find as well.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Jo - Thanks

Ai - nicely done on the ball. Highlight, shadow and lots of color. I like how you did the hatching that the feather looks light and the rock looks heavy. The flower definitely looks to qualify as prickly.

Hope to get a couple done today. Had planned on a feather and maybe a ‘god’ thing or 2.

Keep sketching
Joe

Re: Scavenger Hunt #597: August 01 to 09

Jo - well done on the treed road into your property

Joe - AHA you found a pulley - and I bet it's the first time you've ever drawn one

Ai - good spherical, feather, and rock. Oooh that prickly "crown of thorns" indeed looks spiky and dangerous
