Scavenger Hunt 52, Sketches 1 and 2

We are off on a new Hunt on wetcanvas.com. Number 52, more than a year as they are 9 days long. Wow!

#1, cover of the most recent book you have read. Tony Hillerman's, Hunting Badger. The first book I have completed in ages. I spend so much time on the computer. About 30 minutes in my NY sketchbook with a Micron 005 in green. The photos always make the paper look blue, but it is white.

#2, crumpled paper. A page of the newspaper. Again about 30 minutes in the same sketchbook and same pen. The table is all off, I added that as an afterthought and the paper looks to be floating, which is why I added the table. It still looks to be floating. Magic paper!

There are always 26 items in the Hunts, plus challenges. I think the most I have done is about 16. So I have a goal to reach. Will I ever finish one? Not important, though. The idea is to sketch and I have been sketching more that I ever did before. That is very good.

More to follow, another day. :) I have to go paint a tree.
