Sketches for Hunt 77

It is already Scavenger Hunt 77 on wetcanvas.com. Wow. I haven't been sketching and I'm out of practice. It is amazing how the skills sag when you don't use them. It is the same in all skills. If you don't speak a language for a while you stall when called upon to use it. If you play a musical instrument, it is the same. If you are new to my blog, you can read here about why I sketch the way I do.

Here are my sketches I did on March 8, such as they are. In my regular sketchbook with a Micron 005 pen and a little colored pencil. The color makes the sketches look better. :)

Number 1, cutting board and knife. 15 minutes. I rarely use this cutting board. I thought the round shape would be handy, but it takes more room to store and except for round cheese it is sometimes to short. That is a paring knife on it so you can see it isn't large.

Number 2, place setting. Very old items if you call forty years old.

I like your plate nd silver drawings. I love to do those too, usually in cartoon form.
Well done.

Hi Linda, Thank you for stopping by. I think the color really improved these particular sketches. I'm out of practice....

I have been checking your blogs but have not had much time to comment. I'm about 10 days behind...:(

Jo: I really like the cutting board sketch. I would have liked to see the cheese wheel on the board with a wedge removed. I hope you do it that way some day.

fishing guy, Thanks .. I don't trust myself to use food .. it always disappears. :)

It has a warm and inviting feel to it.
