An Empty Main Street
This is the main street of Locke. Locke CA is an old Chinese settlement of workers who built the great railroads and levees on the Delta. It is a wonderful place for plein air painting because of the old buildings with porches and dilapidated alleyways. Some business is still active but it is a tourist destination. The bikers love to come here and roar up and down Main Street. We have great weather and yesterday we were there for a paint=out. I worked wet into wet and boned out some buildings as it dried. It was a big puddle for a long time but I came back with some dry brush.
