The biggest difference between studio painting and painting at the scene is in the subject of the end-result. When I go there, I don’t know in advance what or who will be the subject. Aside from composition, color, light choices, I’m just talking subject now.
These kids walked by apart from each other, as time passed, they appeared on the painting. See how that’s so different. It’s always a surprise to what you’ll bring home.
It’s definitely not easy to paint there, especially from where I stood: pretty much in the main pathway. Here below the palette used.

Normally I wouldn’t use this combination, orange-reds and turquoise, but it worked.
Too many peeps walking & talking by. But yes, what I always say applies: the end-results (most often) are worth the pains :) because these pains are very real. No two ways about that.
Standing near the water is far smarter :)
