Scavenger Hunt #26: January 20-28

Welcome to Scavenger Hunt #26!

Participants who have not had a turn creating a scavenger hunt list for us can do so by posting to this thread We need hosts, please! In fact, we need a host for the Feb. 13 hunt!

Here are our rules for this week:
  • 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 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 #26 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:
  • shelves or cabinet
  • vase
  • bottle
  • pitcher
  • fruit
  • stuffed animal
  • something yellow
  • figure (doll or sculpture)
  • clock, hourglass or timer
  • brass or gold object
  • seashell
  • favorite gemstone or rock
  • books
  • box (can be small/decorative)
  • a tin (Altoids, cookie tin, etc.)
  • bowl
  • copper object
  • silver object
  • flowerpot
  • flower
  • leaves/greenery
  • plate
  • cup
  • musical instrument (real, decorative, or mini)
  • wooden object
  • drinking glass

If there are any items you do not have, feel free to substitute with whatever you wish. Try to come as close as you can to a requested object.

I have a special challege for this week. (The challenge is totally optional.) All of the items have been selected so that they can fit into a single painting or drawing. Yep, that's right! Get out that HUGE sheet of paper you've been saving. Even a large piece of newsprint or a cut up paper bag should do just fine. A full sheet of watercolor or fine drawing paper would be awesome. Use a canvas and oils if you'd like. You can do either all or just part of the list this way and still count it as completion of the challenge.
  • 1. Position the items on the shelves or cabinet. Take a pic to show us if you'd like. Select your surface to work on.
  • 2. Sketch/paint the items one at a time, or in small groups, just as you would for any other scavenger hunt. Take pics of your work as you go, so you can number them and show us the items as you do them. We will be seeing cropped versions of the entire piece as you continue to work on it.
  • 3. When you've finished, take a photo so that we can see the completed work with all the items you've included in the challenge.

I hope you'll enjoy this, but just in case, I'm ducking down behind the computer so that nothing coming out of the screen can hit me. Nananana

Whew, what a doozie of a challenge!! That looks fun. I doubt I'll have time (I've been coming and looking at the drawings lately but have been too busy to post or draw). I hope to do SOMETHING this time! That's a great list, Jamie.

Jamie, you may want to duck for sure. The list is interesting and challenging. I like the over all challenge. See what I can do.

Later,
Jo

Leslie, I hope you have time to do a few of the items too. I hope to take the challenge and spend the 8 days on a single larger piece for a change. 'Haven't done my setup for it yet. That should be fun! (Maybe the most fun part of the entire thing. LOL)

That really should be fun, Jamie! I may see if I can clear a shelf and try it myself! It looks great.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #26: January 20-28

Well, I think I kinda sorta have a setup. I'm going to look for a canvas later and see what I have that will suit. I'm hoping there's a 24x30 hiding amidst my canvases. I'll probably switch out a couple of these items and move things around a little more, but this is the idea. I hope to start blocking in tomorrow. After that, I'll go section by section. I think I got all 26 items in here!

Great list and a good idea Jamie; however, I think I'll stick with my sketchbook.

Helen, I'm sure it won't be long before I'm asking myself that age-old question:

What was I thinking?????


LOL

Re: Scavenger Hunt #26: January 20-28

Hi Jamie and fellow scavenger hunters! I'm planning to participate in this hunt - these look really fun. I hope it's ok to forgo the shelf or cabinet though - I'm not even certain I have one that would work. It is a good idea, though, and I'm looking forward to seeing what people do with it! Thanks for hosting!

Annie, I'm so glad you'll join us! The cabinet thing is totally optional. I'm regretting it already! heeheehee Looking forward to seeing whatever you choose to do.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #26: January 20-28

Hehehe....Jeanne, I had removed it while moving things around, and forgot to put it back! Many of the items are moved around again, and the musical instrument (very tiny!) is back on the shelf. I'm really impressed that you noticed it was missing! My guess is that before I start painting tomorrow, I'll do a little more swapping. I can't seem to help myself. It must be something of an occupational hazard. Nothing is set until that first stroke is down, end even then..... I did find a 24x30" canvas that I'd previously extra-primed, so that's good to go! Whew! I'm so excited. I don't know if I'll be saying that in several more days.

Nitsa, yes, you can even just quickly sketch a few items. Just take the list and use it in the way that benefits you personally the most. I desperately need to do a big painting cause I haven't done one for so long, so this will help me reach that personal goal.....I hope! But nobody needs to do it that way if they feel a different way will suit them better.

Jamie
