What do Bed, Ink and Glue have in Common? Hunt 496

Sketched in the big book and a real surprise I used the Micron 01, sketching quickly and with no pencil outline.

Scavenger Hunt 496

Number 6, bed
Number 7, Ink
Number 8, glue

The photo was taken with Gene's iPhone.  It has a flash but didn't help the curve of the paper creating a shadow.  I think opening the book for the scanner is damaging the spine and I don't want to do that so bad photos will have to do when it is windy and not sunny.

It is a blustery day as they say in Winnie the Pooh.

Baseball tonight with Incarnate Word from San Antonio.  The Horns played them only once before in 2015.  The Horns won and there are several players on both teams now that played then.  Interesting.  Hook 'em Horns!

Lots of detail in the sketch of the bed. Once again I've slacked off...I need to push myself and get started on the hunt again.

Sometimes I go into the office where there is no indirect light to cast shadows. My phone takes pretty good photos that way. Now if I could just figure out how to get the phone pics to my computer without having to email myself. sigh.

Joan, ha, I was kicking myself for not giving the bed a plain bedspread and pillow covers! I think sometimes you need a break and to do something different. All your other sketching can work for the Hunts!

Bag Blog, good idea. We have iPhones so they sync with the computer and iPad to download photos. Always more steps than we like!!

the weight of the big book prob wouldnt do the scanning bed any good :/

Jennifer Rose, thank you.... The scanner seems to bear up. :)
