Sketchy Sketches for Hunt 100

It seems I have been in a rush and my sketches are very sketchy to say the least. I am happy that I have completed some, but they aren't up to standard. Bear with me! I will get back on track.

For Scavenger Hunt 100, the list is bilingual in Thai as well as English. These are in my regular sketchbook.

Number 1, Horizontal (naew-non), sidewalk. 5-10 minutes with a Pilot ballpoint pen.

Number 2, Vertical, (naew-tung), fence. 10 minutes with a Pilot ballpoint pen.

Number 3, Half empty (wang-kreung), Gene's glass, the live in pessimist and Number 4, Half full (tem-kreung), my glass, the optimist. About 20 minutes total with the Pilot ballpoint pen, which has to be abandoned for sketching, it is starting to leak a little. You can see where the lines got dark and thick. First time for me that one of these pens has gone bad.

Number 5, Ice (nam-khang), an ice tray that is blue plastic. Poor perspective, I was just lazy. Sigh.... 10 minutes with a Micron 05 pen.

Number 6, Quick (raiw). Ducks on the move at the golf course. They don't look like ducks, maybe swimming chickens?? 5 minutes, Micron 05 pen.

Number 7, Slow (chaa). The twosome ahead of us that were slow, giving me time to sketch them and the ducks. 5 minutes, Micron 05 pen.

You continue to amaze me with your scavenger hunts! I love looking to see what you've found to sketch. :)

Jo Castillo said...

Thanks, Valerie. They are fun and keep me sketching. I have never sketched regularly and this has helped so much.

Jo: I like the ice tray best of the sketches.

Regina Calton Burchett said...

Jo - these are great, especially the ice tray! Maybe you are the "Ice Queen", as that goes along with the chips and ice-cold glass of Coke you drew in pastel that I liked so much. :-)

Jo Castillo said...

fishing guy, thanks.

Regina, thank you, too. Guess I could say the plastic tray is bent and out of shape from the cold and a bad photo, but ...... :)
