Night Scenery, Main Street at Night, by Joan Tavolott

I have a local sketch group that meets every Wednesday night. In the summer it isn't a problem to find locations to sketch, but now that it is getting dark earlier it gets more difficult. Last night we went to Patchogue. Rain was forecast so the plan was to sit inside the coffee shop and sketch, but the rain didn't come until much later so we set up outside the coffee shop. I started sketching this about 6:30 and by the time I was ready to paint it had turned dark. We had enough light from the inside of the coffee shop and the street lights to still be able to finish by 7:30.
