Washington Heights

Went out with my oils and sat on 187 and St.Nicholas ave, what a place.. it buzzes around with a life of its own at all hours of the day and night. I figure while I am here I should paint some of the Washington Heights area, since I am working on a book on it.
 So I sat there, mixing and painting fast while people walked around, and thought I was nuts.. this was just after it had rained, so the clouds were moving west.
Anyway, I realize that oils is not the greatest medium to put in a sketch book, walking around trying to make sure the pages did not stick was a laugh. I am sure I will do that again, but be more prepared.
Best to all.
