    there might be a thread on this already, but I couldnt find it. I'm curious as to who hits freights during the day and who goes on night missions.

    If you have a really chill spot way the fuck out in the boonies, then its easy to take your time and paint in broad daylight. but some of us arent that lucky. I'm still searching for this wonderful mid-forest spot.

    so when's your preferred time to paint?

    ...why the hell would you even need to ask a question like this?...of course it's better to paint in the daytime...it's just not always possible...so you have to be able to knock out burners at night too...

    I was just wondering because where I'm at all the spots are too heat to paint during the day and too dark to see whats going on at night.

    Honestly..I love painting at night.
    Day time is cool..but i like to paint at night.

    Yep. Tis true tis true.

    And all chill day spots are way out in the boonies. I guess I'm just lucky like that.

    This about covers it. If you're having trouble seeing in the dark, take just black and white and add carrots to your diet.

    oh sun, sun, mr. golden sun

    I have yet to incounter a good day spot in my hood. I did paint this e2e with some doods a while back and was the only one to finish before the cops came.. never got a flick, but it was a nice burner. i could use those light colours that dont mix well at night, which was a treat:cool:

    lol, carrots.

    seriously, if i drove out to like the dakotas or something i would consider painting in the day. but my personal rule of thumb (and i learned this the hard way) a good daytime spot is an even better night time spot.

    i would much rather paint in the day, no question! i would rather wake up at noon and go out and paint a train than wake up at 3 in the morning and paint

    yeah, come out to central sodak, day freights in the yard in the middle of a 10,000 pop. town :) , only done mid-days twice though, much rather go at night. i've thought about early morning, just as the sun rises, before school etc...

    yup, the early morn is the shit. like start around 0400 and paint until the sun comes up, get fliks and be out. going to sleep at midinght or even 1100 and then getting up at 3 is the real challenge in that though.
