Painting The Town Plein Air Style

I have spent a few evenings painting the coastal houses in Oregon.  To beat the inevitable setting sun, you have to paint decisively and quick.  This isn't easy since there are constant distractions such as the irresistible,  friendly, big dogs with their owners, the  curious, chatty people passing by and, of course, the car you were painting suddenly being driven away.   This is part of the plein air experience.  I love the process.
As you can see I am basically managing to block in the lights and darks.
