Scavenger Hunt #89 June 2 - 10

Next here are the rules: 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 on the current hosting list in the Art from Life forum:
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show...hreadid=366347

Here are the rules for this Hunt:

* All items on the list must be sketched from life - not imagination or 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 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! The Scavenger Hunt "week" 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.

Now the list:
1. A fan
2. an art box (Challenge #1 - Show contents)
3. A still life with a sperical, triangular, and cubic form
4. A bucket or pail
5. A growing plant
6. A landscape including trees
7. A collection of cleaning implements and supplies
8. A favorite chair
9. Something checkered
10. A hat (Challenge #2 - the head that it sits on)
11. a blooming seasonal flower
12. Before and after
13. A corkscrew
14. A switch
15. A piece of fabric (can be made into an item)
16. A mode of transportation
17. A communication device
18. Something musical
19. A bookcase (Challenge #3 - with contents)
20. A view from your favorite chair
21. A building
22. a pair of woman's shoes
23. a purse, sack, or pouch
24. a desk lamp or a floor lamp
25. two different fruits
26. a hot plate or trivet

Enjoy!!

Lynda

Re: Scavenger Hunt #89 June 2 - 10

Not sure how much I'll be able to contribute on this hunt, but at least I can kick it off.

1 my favourite chair. (Pencil 20 mins.)



I'd just finished that when a van drew up outside the window, so I quickly drew it before it could get away. As it is I drew it so it fell off the edge of the page, but I kid myself it gives the impression of a moving vehicle.

2 Means of transportation (Pencil 10 mins)



Lizzie

Re: Scavenger Hunt #89 June 2 - 10

Lynda - Good list!!

Lizzie - I think it does show movement. An image running off the page always adds something to a picture ..like kind of tension or movement.

Oh yeah I like the chair too.

Re: Scavenger Hunt #89 June 2 - 10

It's always such fun to see how others interpret items!!
Lizzie - great chair - looks like it would be geat to sit in. I also like the van's movement in and out of the frame.
Joe - great fan - what's it made of? Nice job on the at box - looks like a plastic bin? eally like the colors and comp of the pail and still life - nice texture and shaping to the fabric - looks like denim.
Lynda

Re: Scavenger Hunt #89 June 2 - 10

Great list this week Lynda!

Lizzie: The van is good. Maybe going a bit fast, or maybe at bit slow. .Slow enough for you to sketch it at any rate. I think I could nap on the beach in that chair


Joe: Neat fan. Not from a fan dancer I presume. Your art box is neater than mine. There is nothing in mine, strewn(?) all over my desk, computer station and the floor. Great color set.A Pail, a cloth (Wouldn’t that be a pail cloth. as opposed to a dust cloth?), and some mystic crystals.. Excellent color in that set.

My #1 is below. An Iris will do for the seasonal flower. It’s from my backyard flower patch. I was going to do one of the yellow ones, but couldn’t find a yellow watercolor pencil. I used Staedtler Karat Aquarell watercolor pencils on 140 cold press Strathmore watercolor paper Aproxx 3" x 7." About 10 minutes.

Chuck

#1 Blue Iris

Re: Scavenger Hunt #89 June 2 - 10

Joe - Thanks. I that sense of satisfaction when I finish the hunts. Ooh!!! What wonderful texture in that fan...must be from a trip somewhere. Nice job on the art box and contents. Love the pencil sketch of the fabric, pail, and geometric crystals. Nice shadows there.

Chaz - Beautiful color and softness in your iris!!
