Sketches for Hunt 388, More Colored Pen

This is the last day for Scavenger Hunt 388.  I did 9 sketches which is about normal.  There are 26 items and I rarely do more than 12. I did 25 one Hunt.  My goal in sketching is to keep at it as often as I can.  I try to sketch quickly and accurately. 

I am not as accurate when I am in a hurry.  If you look at the egg you will see I had the right lower egg too big and corrected that. 

I sketched in the large sketchbook with the Micron 005 pens that Joanna gave me.  Pretty cool.

Number 6, wrist
Number 7, crumpled paper
Number 8, egg
Number 9, hot - hot habenero pepper mix that our friend, "T", gave us.  Yummy!

I thought the eggs were great.

Thanks, Bag Blog. Eggs are interesting to draw and paint. Love to paint the white, just no time. Ha.

more nice sketches :) would have never noticed about the egg if you had not have mentioned it ;) the nature of the ink pens lets you really get away with having a sketchy look :)

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer Rose, I had not thought of the "sketchy look" being so helpful. Messy worked out on this! You made me smile.

I see you are using colored ink...nice!!!

Jo Castillo said...

Joan, the colored ink is different. It doesn't feel as intense. Maybe it is just the finer lines. Thanks.

Joanna said...

Glad you're liking the pens. Hugs...

Jo Castillo said...

Joanna, thanks again. The pens make me think and that is always good.
