Night at the Uptown

Nocturne painting is one of my favorite kinds of plein air!  There is something magical about just painting the light!  I like to wait until it is dark enough to see what the street lights will illuminate.  Once I find my subject, I look for a street light to paint beneath.  I want to position my easel so that the light shines in both palette and panel, if possible.  In this case, I was very far from the street light, so everything was darker than I prefer, but I could still see well enough.  I never know for sure how the painting looks until I check it the next morning - and this one is a keeper!  Painting number 1925 inn 1925 days.
