bourbon st

I got around to finishing this painting started on location on Bourbon St. I'm really pleased with how it came out especially with the color and composition... it has a good feeling for dusk and a nice movement to the crowd. On location I got all the street and buildings but only scratched in the figures. With a few stills from some camera phone videos I fleshed out the crowd in my studio. It was a fun night and the only painting on the trip where I was left entirely to my own devices to just find someplace captivating and paint. And since I just happened to be staying about a block from this spot what else could I do? oil on canvas, 24 by 18
