daily painting | carrots

A fascinating SF Sketchers adventure at Mission Science Workshop. It’s like a small, funky Exploratorium near Mission Dolores in San Francisco and it was hard to decide what to paint! An entire horse skeleton, bugs under glass, lizards and snakes in terrariums, radio parts, frog eggs. Fabulous, and the members of the group were great fun and very kind. All sorts of experiments for kids to try; some of them quite clangy and noisy so I went outside in the bright sunshine to get an aural break. Found a lush garden next to the soccer field. Someone had plucked these carrots from the soil and left them on a table for this ready-made still life and I managed to avoid getting bonked by flying soccer balls while I sloshed around in my watercolor palette. The delicious veggies were a tempting snack. But I held back.
