Setting Sun

I loaded my gear into the truck after painting "Palms in the Sea Mist" and then I saw this beautiful sunset. I was out of quarters for the parking meters so I looked around and found 29 minutes on a meter. I quickly moved the car, unloaded my gear and quickly painted this scene. I started with the sun because it was going down quickly. I barely had it in when it disappeared behind the marine layer. I quickly laid down spots of color to lock in the color key and then finished it off as it was getting dark. And no, there wasn't any time left on the meter or a ticket on the windshield when I got back. It was a good day.
