Hunting Chairs, Ellipses, etc.

I sketched while watching the UT football game yesterday. It was so nice sitting out on the porch. These are for Scavenger Hunt 106. If you are new to my blog you can read why I sketch for the Scavenger Hunts here in an older post.

Number 1, chair - the wooden/leather rocker from Peru that sits out on the porch. It is a large chair, comfortable even though it has no cushioning. Number 2, lots of ellipses - the bell mobile from Peru as well. The Hunt list did not say they had to be well done ellipses. Good thing. These are with the Micron 05 pen about 20 minutes each.

Number 3, table leg - the old enamel top table from the 40s or 50s with chrome legs. Number 4, pull chain - the chain on the ceiling fan. Number 5, stack of ....... - stack of papers for recycling. I read it was supposed to be a stack of 3 after I was looking for the next item. Oh well. Number 6, Door knob. These are all with the Micron pen, about 30 minutes total.

Yesterday was International Sketch Crawl as well as International Artist Day. Hmmm.

Hi fishing guy, That is the chair I sit in usually. I don't spend much time looking at it. Ha. Thanks.

Good sketching!!! Belated Internation Artist Day!!! If I had know what the tradition involved (dinner out) I would have brought my husband along on my sketchcrawl with my sister. lol

Joan, any excuse to go out and not cook is a good one. I didn't remember the sketchcrawl. :(
