Sketches for a New Hunt

A new Scavenger Hunt, Number 81, started today. I got a couple done, see what you think? A good start. We shall see how many I get done.

Number 1, birdhouse or cage; number 2, trunk of tree (challenge include knotholes); number 3, roof line of building. I sketched with a Pilot Ball Point pen that I use at my desk for writing. It is a decent pen for sketching, thin line. 30 minutes in the regular sketchbook. I sketched the birdhouse first and then realized that the roofs of the sheds were there and also the tree so I just kept on sketching. Lucky me.


Number 4, legs - yours or someone else's. You can bet I didn't do mine. About 10 minutes or less with the Pilot pen.

Nice work Jo. The first sketch looks like a plan from the beginning! Very confident lines on the legs. Well done.

Jo Castillo said...

Thank you Rose. Nice to see you.

Jo: That first sketch is framable without the notes. I think it's really good.
Do you frame any of your sketch work?

Jo Castillo said...

Joanna, we will look forward to the photos, especially the lizard/gecko. Some bird is cawing up a storm, must be a blue jay...

Later,

Jo Castillo said...

fishing guy, Thank you so much. I have not framed any of the sketches. I do have a couple of pen and ink drawings framed from the old days. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

Very productive day, Jo!!!
