Hunting Objects

I sketched some hunted objects for Scavenger Hunt 87 again. Look at the previous post for some hows and whys and more sketching info. These sketches are done with a Micron 005 pen in the regular sketchbook.

Number 7, someone working. These guys were up on the new house next door doing the roofing. I only sketched for 5 or 10 minutes it was near 90 degrees at the time. I don't know how they do it!

Number 8, hinge. The hinge on my cell phone. About 15 minutes.

Number 9, a plant you helped grow. 15 minutes. This is a plant we have had for many years and it has flourished. This last summer in New Mexico just about ended it and it has not recovered from the droopy look. So a plant I helped grow and I am trying to teach to be a desert plant which it is fighting and will probably die this summer. Oh well.

I worked on the painting commission and should finish it up tomorrow! Yeah!

Hmmm...perhaps if you had better summer help, the plants wouldn't die. It really is very sad.

Joanna, Guess I should look for an automatic waterer even when we are here. I even let the plant in the kitchen die and was seeing it every day. That, is sad.

Jo: Another great set of sketches, good job.

Good sketches!!! You and I had the same thought for the hinge. I don't know how the construction workers do it. I like being in the sun, but with the option to jump in the water when necessary.
