I am finding the project of the Scavenger Hunt very interesting and useful. I have been using only Mixed Media techniques and also graphite for many years and when painting or drawing realism, it has always been from a reference. I am being pushed out of my comfort zone this time by having to draw from life and I intend to use at least all of the different techniques possible in 23 or more subjects for this project.
