This is item #1 for this 12th Scavenger Hunt. The object was to sketch, draw or paint a symmetrical object. Graphite on 5" x 8" sketch pad, time spent was approximately 30 minutes.
Item #2 is to find a dried or wilting flower or plant. This was a peach colored rose that was almost gone. Casein paints on 5" x 5" Arches 300 lb. paper with time spent approximately 30 minutes. This photo was taken inside with only window light but it shows the textures of the paper which I thought were an important part of the painting.
