Plein Air Challenge: Day 5

I've already fallen behind in posting my daily paintings.  Here's Day 5.  This isn't something I typically do but I guess that's why it's called a challenge.  I'm usually drawn to the wide open landscape but wanted to test myself and try something new.  I struggled to simplify and find large shapes, even though in reality there was soooo much going on in this little space!  The point of this excercise is to get better at painting all types of subjects on location.  I am hoping to try something like this, maybe even this location, again later in the challenge to see if I can improve.
