En Plein Air: High and Dry (Oil, 9 x 12)

The scene's location is the Jamaica Bay at the intersection of Cross Bay Blvd and E 6 Rd. As a matter of fact, I noticed the spot yesterday from the bus on my way home. After seeing the view, I was unable to forget it. I decided to paint it today, not knowing if I could still find the place. I followed the route I did yesterday. Luckily I saw it again on the bus. I hopped off at Noel Rd stop and walked back. The weather was cool but very windy. I found it difficult to hold my brush steady. The wind rattled the easel. I know I overdid a little. Learned a lesson.
