Paseo, color in the night

Paseo at Night, 5 by 8 watercolor 140# d'Arches
The Paseo Arts District in OKC is all about color, from the building exteriors, to the multiple colors of artists and art  interiors.
First Friday, last night, I saw the iconic "white" building bathed in incandescent light, and snapped a photo. 
"Use any color you want," said Frank Francese at the  watercolor workshop here last year. Vibrant Lessons
So here it is, first attempt, rough, but still the color and spirit of Paseo at night. More coming, I hope. And the photograph.
