Even though the idea of painting a large mass of people can seem intimidating I tried to look at this the same way I would paint a field of wildflowers-grouping them as a whole and not at all interested in painting each one.
I set up shop in a parking garage directly above the masses. It was a great location with some shade, great smells from nearby food vendors, live music, and a nice breeze. All of the things that make plein air so much of a wonderful departure from studio paintings.
