The Last of Hunt 566 and an Old Sketch

These Hunts just fly by.  The big sketchbook has room for plenty more sketches so decided to add half a page sketch.  The tool was the usual Prismacolor Fine Line Marker/Pen 03.

For Scavenger Hunt 566 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1457483

 Number 8, safety item and Number 9, animal - this is a little hedgehog.  I'm pretty sure I've sketched him before.  We have no live animals as you know.

One of the challenges of the Hunt was to place three items together.  I could have done that by adding one more item.  You can see, though, that I didn't sketch them side by side.  Dang, as Bag Blog would say.

I received an interesting e-mail a couple of days ago with an image of a drawing I did in 1994.  I gave it to our friend, Xochitl.  She was unpacking recently after a move and ran across the framed drawing.  She took a snapshot and sent it to me.  I had forgotten about it and it is nice to have a copy from fun times.

I'm pretty sure the drawing was from memory and not a photo.  The horse reminds me of my horse, Nieto.  The cowboy looks a tiny bit like my dad.  And the scene like the Field ranch or Pie Place in New Mexico where I got to be a cowgirl.   I would guess I laid the scene out in pencil and then drew with a fountain pen and India ink.  Thanks, Xochilt, for the good memory.

The sketches of the fire extinguisher and hedgehog are great. The old sketch is like wow! Maybe you could re-sketch it and add color. It would make a nice pastel.

Bag Blog, thank you so much. You can see my sketching style hasn't changed. Maybe a do-over some time.
