Retractable Sketch

What does "retractable" make you think of?  That is part of the fun of sketching on the Scavenger Hunts.  The list usually consists of real items, like cup or flower, and then words that allow your imagination and memories to take over.  I immediately thought of a retractable pen but couldn't find the one I usually use, so went off to find something else and found the measuring tape.

It is interesting to see what the other artists think of.  Even with something like cup, we get so many variations  ... even a bra cup maybe??  You might think of some completely different item or idea.  We also sketch with different media.  You will see sketches in pen and ink, pencil, watercolor, oil, digital and more.

Visit the Scavenger Hunts on  Many other forums there, too, just about anything you can think of art related.  I hang out in the Southwest Forum and occasionally in the Pastel and Plein Air Forums.  It is free and you can learn sooooo much and meet artists from around the world.  See you there.

For Scavenger Hunt 318, number 2, fabric. My shirt done with Brushes and fingers on my iPad.

Number 3, retractable.  Sketched with a weird no-name pen in my regular sketchbook.
