Night Painting

I tried my hand at painting at night with Jesse in Downtown RWC last night. It was significantly more difficult than painting during the day. The biggest challenge was getting colors right because the lighting we were painting under was of a yellowish color-cast. I felt colorblind. Ultramarine blue looked just like burnt sienna and paynes grey under the night lights. Still, it was a lot of fun, and a homeless man came and told us stories about Vietnam and motorcycle gangs as we painted.

Agreed about not being able to see shite. I couldn't tell the difference between alizarin crimson, raw umber, and the beer the bum spilled (or was it pee?).

this one came out though! way to go, man.
