Hunting and Hosting, Scavenger Hunt 102

Scavenger Hunt 102 starts today and I am hosting. I recycled the list from the first hunt I hosted in February of 2007. I started sketching for the Hunts in June of 2006. It is interesting to see how many artists have come and gone. We have had participants from all over the world and about every media. I will post more about this in the next nine days. I thought I had better get at least one sketch done.

Number 1, pasta. This is the best gluten free pasta I have found. Very similar to regular pasta in texture. The ones made with just rice or corn fall apart and are sticky. Anyway, this was about 10 minutes in the Cachet sketchbook with a Micron 05 pen. I sat out on the back patio (slab) as it was nice this morning and did the sketch there.

We are in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for a while for those of you that are stopping by for the first time. That means balloons starting on October 4. The huge Balloon Fiesta starts then. Wow!

Jo: Straight lines, I can do that. Now that shading and picture are harder.

fishing guy, If you can do the straight lines and I put the shadows, maybe we would get a believable sketch. :)
