This drawing was done while out with the San Diego Sketchcrawlers. We met at the picnic area across from the Otto Center which is part of the San Diego Zoo. It was a nice shady secluded area.
When the carousel opened, we TRIED to sketch that. It moved pretty fast which made it hard to draw but it was a fun ride! From the Carousel website:
The 1910 Balboa Park Carousel, adjacent to the San Diego Zoo, is a menagerie of animals and all but two pairs are original with hand-carved European craftsmanship. This carousel is one of the few in the world still offering the brass ring game for everyone taking 5 minute ride.
