Hunting Halloween Sketches

It is cooler and windy today so drove the car in the neighborhood to sketch some Halloween things.  These are for Scavenger Hunt 516 with one word Movie titles for items.

I took the big book and the Micron 01.  I give a big shout out to Joan Tavolott (link below) who sketches in her "car studio" all the time, especially in cold weather.  It is not easy, at least not holding the big book on the steering wheel!

Number 11 (or maybe 10, I think I counted a sketch that wasn't for this Hunt), Halloween - we have nothing so sketched a couple of things at a couple of neighbors' houses.  The pumpkin on the fence is a sparkly metal mesh and lighted up at night with orange mini lights.  We don't even have any candy with Halloween decorations on it. 

Number 12, Radio - the only radios we have now are in the car.  The viewing panel for the radio and all is above the air conditioner and I chose not to sketch all that.

We went to the Front Room in Smithville for Sushi Night last night with friends.  I fully intended to sketch their Halloween stuff.  We got there a few minutes early but I didn't take my sketchbook.  Normal, right?

They had some cute things up.  The tree stays with decorations for each season.  There are wine cork decorations and the red devil horns head band.  Cute.

The pumpkin is small as you can tell by the lights.  I like the witches hat!

This Hunt ends today, we shall see where we go from here......

Art Note:

Wow, beautiful and who would have thought maritime paintings would be in Southwest Art?  Joan Tavolott , http://watercolorsbyjoan2.blogspot.com/  , will like these.

I had a hard time with the one word song titles. lol Good sketches of the Halloween decorations. My secret for the mobile studio is to put my seat back as far as I can make it go. I sketch and paint with my book or board on my lap. I find the angle too strange if I rest it against the steering wheel.

I have done some decorating for fall, but not necessarily for Halloween. That would put me over the top on craziness. It is funny that people on the internet usually complain about Christmas things coming out before Thanksgiving, but this year I have seen lots of Christmas things out in stores since about Oct 1. Good Grief!

Joan, thanks for the hints. I could have moved to the passenger seat as well, but you know .... lazy me! You did great for Inktober!!

Bag Blog, the kids here go to town for Halloween, the stores downtown have contests, candy, etc. We have never seen a trick or treater in all the years we have lived here. I still buy candy! Always the kind I like! I agree about Christmas. Our Walmart and Hobby Lobby are selling starting about 3 weeks ago. Good Grief, is right!

Jo, I have a hard time sketching from the passenger seat. It restricts my right arm having the door on that side. lol I guess I am too fussy. Happy Halloween!
