Scavenger Hunt#254 -- Jan 22-30, 2012

Welcome to Scavenger Hunt #254

If you've participated in at least one Scavenger Hunt and have time to host one we would really appreciate it. You can sign up by posting your name on the Current Hosting Schedule HERE


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


Here are the rules for the hunt:

1. ALL items must be sketched from life, not imagination or a photo reference.

2. Each object you draw can count for only one item on the list, no matter how many shapes/parts/colors that object contains.

3. You may place multiple objects together in a drawing or painting, and may count these objects as separate items, but no single object can count for more than one item.

4. All items posted must be numbered. Count them as you go. The first item you 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.

5. Do as many or as few of the items as you like. You don't have to finish the entire list to participate.

6. The Scavenger Hunt "week" will last for 9 days, with the next hunt starting on the 9th day.

7. Please tell us the size, surface, medium, and the amount of time it took you for each sketch. We love hearing about your subjects and setups. Photos of your subjects are welcome.

8. If you have some hunt sketches completed but little time to read/comment, please post your sketches anyways. Commenting is appreciated but not necessary.


Here is the Hunt#254 list:

---------------------------------------------
1. colored glass
2. metal
3. wood
4. string
5. bread/bakery
6. bin/bucket
7. button
8. money/coin
9. bottle
10. watch
11. leaf
12. flower
13. vegetable (Challenge#1 -- a still-life of at least three kinds)
14. fruit
15. animal
16. ceramic/tile/terracotta
17. heat
18. garden related
19. cup (Challenge#2 -- do at least two different view points of the same cup)
20. having wheels
21. shirt
22. pants/skirt
23. something you have not sketched before
24. outdoor scene
25. special
26. person

Challenge#3 -- do a still-life of at least three of the items as an illustration with love/romantic poem.... Valentine day is coming near

Re: Scavenger Hunt#254 -- Jan 22-30, 2012

Nice list once again!

Here is my 'item never drawn before' It took me about 30 min in all as I had to dig for the charcoal pencil and then couldn't find the Graphitints (I don't enjoy moving! ;-) ) but finally I got it all together! The shadow really was that blue as I have a 'true' light - or whatever it is called- bulb in the lamp. I thought it looked kinda cool

Still working in my trusty little Canson Sketchbook (5.5x8.5) which is quickly filling up now!

Just because the items are numbered, please do not number your entries with those numbers. Just number yours 1,2,3, as you do them

Thanks, Jeanne
