We are back in Sketchbook Skool, second session, and the Theme this six weeks is "Seeing."

These are onions from church this past Sunday (someone has a food ministry, collects leftovers from some of the organic stores in the area, brings them in for the church folks.)

Here's my Fast Slow sketch:

This one started life as a plein air painting, but after about a half hour, the mosquitoes won and I gave up.
I finished it today by walking and standing to study the scene, then back inside to cool down and paint. It's not exactly what I was seeing, but pretty anyway.
