Painting the Streets

Last night I finished this little painting that I'd started one morning this summer in Easton, MD. I've actually been dying to get back to this painting. I was in a workshop with Kim English -- an artist I admire. I had captured the backdrop of the toy store with the toy soldier, alla prima -- but couldn't come anywhere close to painting moving kids on site. I'll have to practice that.
Hopefully, you can feel the sunshine with this one.
