Combination Sketch

The Scavenger Hunts overlap a day on each end of the Hunt.  The clever side of me thought it would be fun to overlap my last sketch from Hunt 687 with the first sketch of Hunt 688.  It works for the sketch but made for a duplicate post on the Hunts on wetcanvas.  That is boring, right? 

For 687, Number 10 - something in a bottle, lens cleaner
For 688, Number 1 - fabric, cloth for lens cleaning
Sketched in the big book with a Micron 02.  As usual, out on the porch.  Lovely morning.

For Hunt 687 yesterday, Number 9 - view in a drawer, looking in a drawer in Gene's desk.  Electric/electronic stuff.

Drawn at the desk in the big book with a Pilot ballpoint pen.

I worked on the pastel painting.  I think it is done, it needs to sit a while again.  I did have a very square shadow like from a roof but not possible out in the forest.  I changed that and varied the path a bit more, it was very straight like a sidewalk.   Very hard for me to go back after a painting sits so long.  Boring like the duplicate post of the sketch.

Good sketch of the lens cleaner and the cloth. I didn't mind seeing it in both hunts.

i tend to abandon paintins/drawings if its been a few months since i worked on them, unless its oils, they need months sometimes before you can work on another layer

Jennifer Rose, I normally abandon sketches/paintings if I stay away too long. Oil painting I usually do all at once, wet into wet, so don't have to worry about layers drying. I could never paint that way, I would never finish a painting. Ha.

I hear ya on the going back and working on a painting. Although, I cleaned out my stack of watercolors and looked through them. It has been years since I did some of them. Some just needed brightened up. I don't mind that too much.

Bag Blog, you have a good work ethic on your watercolors. I sure need to practice more.
