401 Sketches for the Hunt and More

I managed a few sketches the last couple of days for Scavenger Hunt 401  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1377095  I sketched in the large sketchbook with several Microns, some in color and then added some colored pencil on today's sketches.

Number 1, raisins - I have sketched my breakfast of rice cakes with cream cheese, peanut butter and raisins many times, so elected to sketch the box.  It does have a bright yellow lid and label, but I didn't have a pen with yellow ink.
Number 2, energy - the power cord for Gene's computer
Number 3, part of a shoe, the toe
Number 4, knot - the double knot on the shoestring

Number 5, black and white - a small hat magnet from Columbia
Number 6, magnet - a small bus from Columbia
Number 7, serrated edge - a paring knife

Jennie and I went to a small powwow in Georgetown on April 11.  It was not a competition and there were probably only 40 or so dancers and 2 bands.  They danced gourd dances and blanket dances only.  It was fun to see the tiny tots and the beautiful costumes.  There were no food booths which was a disappointment.  Jennie looks forward to fry bread.  I sketched a little in my new sketchbook, thanks Regina.  reginaburchett.com  You get a peek of it in the first sketch with the pen there.  These are quick sketches, a couple of minutes each.

The sketches from the powwow are fun. Nothing like sketching interesting people. Did you get some good photos?

Bag Blog, two minutes or so doesn't give much of a sketch. It is always fun to go to the powwows. I take lots of photos but usually don't really paint from them because their costumes are all copyright protected and personal/religious. I enjoy looking at them though, especially the kids. I did paint one year and a friend in Albuquerque bought the paintings so they are not out and about. The Austin Powwow used the one little girl I painted to have printed on the bags they gave out the prizes to the tiny tots. That was nice!
