Back to the Sketches Hunt 381 and Hunt 382

Every time I write/type the number of the new Scavenger Hunt I just can't believe it.  This is number 381.  I think I started taking part in Hunt Number 2 back in the summer of 2006.  Wow!

My style of sketching doesn't change unless I really try to copy someone else.  I am better now at sketching more quickly and more accurately.  If I make a good plan that is.

My idea on the door sketch below was to stop at the fourth window frame down.   The perspective was pretty good.  Then I decided to add the last part of the door and the floor.  That made the bar on the window out of perspective.  It should be straighter out and down instead of slanted a bit upward.  I should have quit where I planned to in the beginning.  Instead, I decided to show the bottom of the pillar so there you go, off kilter.  Cover the bottom of the sketch and you will see.

Number 6, bottle - ketchup or catsup, your preference
Number 7, cube - package

Number 8, door
Number 9, pillar
Number 10, fence - two for the price of one, the wrought iron one and the wire fence in the background

I signed on to do my post for Scavenger Hunt 382 today and found that I never posted these, above,  for Hunt 381.  Could be that I was off in la-la land that day.  I even sketched the window while holding my sketchbook upside down.  Jeepers!

Number 1, something I like to eat for breakfast - rice cakes (in the bag)  I forgot to sketch it with the cream cheese, peanut butter and raisins before I ate it!
Number 2, sweet - raisins
Number 3, winter veggie - acorn squash.  Joanna discovered they are sort of nutty flavored and good raw for a snack.  Lots ot trouble to cut but tasty.
Number 4,  napkin
Number 5, where I keep my recipes - on my iPad.  Many of my recipes went in the fire, you may recall, with the recipe boxes and cook books.    Easier to store and share this way.
Number 6, citrus - some Cuties, mandarin oranges

I applaud your commitment to your sketching. My art has taken a backseat, but I'm hopeful that it will pick up soon.

Bag Blog, thank you soooo much. Hope your house is done soon and you can have some fun and play in the dust and watercolors, too.
