Scavenger Hunt Sketches

I have been trying to post to my blog but get an "error" message. Perhaps this time it will work!

The Artwork From Life Forum at Wet Canvas has a Scavenger Hunt. The artists sketch, draw, or painting from life, items posted on the list. My first sketches, using a 2B woodless pencil with watercolor pencils on the last sketch, were an open book, a stove, and a leaf.

I have a tendency to want to blend the graphite so my goal with the Hunt is to use hatching and crosshatching strokes rather than blending or smudging the strokes.
