LouAmne and I set up to paint this scene, planning on a nocturne. As the sun set, the warm hues were irresistible - and we both put in the color we saw, rather than wait for dark. It was a good thing, as the scene in the dark was not nearly as nice! There was enough light radiating from the parking lot at the convenience store to clearly palette and panel, which is how I like to set up for a nocturne. By this fourth painting of the day, the paint was pretty much falling off the brush with very little thought. This painting makes 1324 in 1324 days.
