Hunting Sketches, Pen and Ink

I painted again today on the pastel of Texas Two Step and another for the Footwork series. No good sunshine for photos by the time I finished. I didn't take any WIP (work in progress) photos on the new one. :(

I had time after dinner to sketch for Scavenger Hunt 108. It runs from November 9 - 17, so I have a little time for a couple more. The ideas for the list are book titles, so you have to think. Sometimes I like a regular list with a regular list of items like box, shower curtain, etc., so I don't have to think.

Number 1, The Way You Like It - a little coffee, wine and chocolate is the way I like it. About 15 minutes, Micron 05 pen, half page in the 7 x 10 inch sketchbook. Number 2, Tom Sawyer - a paint can and brush, no picket fence here. :) About 10 minutes on the same page.

I posted earlier today so check that if you don't follow with RSS.

Jo: Neat sketches, I was trying to get a name from the object. Couldn't get the fiirst one but thought of 'Paint Your Wagon' for the second (no wagon). I'm glad you gave your answers.

Hi fishing guy, the paint can would be perfect for "Paint Your Wagon". Cool. I had lots of ideas for the list, but don't have the "real" objects to paint. One of the books was "Around the World in Eighty Days". I have lots of balloon photos, but no access at the moment to a real balloon. Bummer.
