Painting an Alley in Rawlins, Wyoming

In Rawlins, Wyoming, I paint a view of the alley. The wind is pretty strong, so I have a few tips on how to deal with it. (Video on YouTube) (Location Google Streetview)

Note the pattern of parallel light and dark patches in the dirt road. I carried that pattern from the light into the shadow. Carrying a parallel color relationship like that from light to shadow makes the shadows more convincing.
