Hunt #114 Already

It is hard to imagine all the sketches I have done since starting the Scavenger Hunts. We are on number 114 and I have taken part in most of them. It is a good end of the year feeling to accomplish a fair amount. I think I would average at least 5 sketches a hunt, every nine days, so that is over 500 sketches. Yippee!

Number 1, heat - the birds enjoying the warm sun off the corner of the porch in the trees. They found a spot of sun! Number 2, necessary - a pen and sketchbook. My new Rotring pen! I am liking it so far. One thing is that it is made to use at your drawing table. The cap does not hook on to the end of the pen so not convenient for carrying around. Number 3, hand - my hand sketching. These were done yesterday and today in my 7 x 10 inch sketchbook about 15 minutes each sketch.

I almost forgot to mention that I put up the start of my Bolivia paintings on my website. Thanks for checking that out and tell me if you find any links or such that don't work!

Your Bolivia paintings are lovely!

Jo Castillo said...

Fishing guy, thank you so much.

Valerie, thank you, too. I just love Bolivia. We lived there about 10 years all together, like a second home.

You're getting all MC Escher on us with that sketch of your hand sketching. Spooky!
