Finish Sketch Hunt 498 and Start 499

Sketches for the last Hunt which ended yesterday:

Number 10 (or so) art space - the area in my studio where I do my pastels.  Very quick with a Micron 01

For the new Hunt 499 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1428680

Jeroen, sketcher from Amsterdam, made the list from the song, "Summertime and the Living is Easy".  I thought you might get a smile:

What you really wanted to draw but is not on the list
*Bonus* Listen to “Summertime” while drawing
*Also a bonus* Different items in a nice composition.
I sketched in the big sketchbook for a couple of reasons.  We are going to travel and the big book is not going to fill up on its own.  The big book will stay here, too heavy for outdoor sketching.

Number 1, living - the grand-dogs are definitely alive, hard to sketch on the move.

Number 2, fish - our regular fishing guy, he comes in a white pickup, but didn't see where it is parked today.  A catch and release lake/pond.  Fishing looks boring to me.... Although lazing around, especially in a chair, is better than walking!

Number 3, morning - my coffee pot, cup and some Clementines.


The dogs wanted out so took my camera to get a photo or two outside.  The first thing that caught my eye was the Purple Martin house with so may birds.  I took this one photo and then the dogs got after the neighbor walking his dogs.  Nala has no filters or social skills so had to abandon the photo idea and come in.  She is strong and doesn't know it.  She could easily hop over the fence, but thankfully has not discovered that.

The last time the doggies visited we took them walking with us around the lake, but now there are more walkers and some do not use their leashes.  So the yard it is!

The summertime song did make me smile, as did your sketches of the grand-dogs. We now have Mom's other little dog, so that everywhere I go, I have a small pack of dogs with me.

Bag Blog, our last day of the pack of dogs. Smiling! They are OK, I'm just too old to clean up messes and chase them down. Ha. Maybe we will see your pack in a couple of weeks.

Ai, our artist sketcher from Thailand, sketched and onion and knife for "cry". It is so much fun to see what people come up with on their finds for the Hunt.
