I mean, he's just peeing right in plain view, two feet away from where I'm standing.

That means he doesn't understand yet what's expected of him.

The mistake many people make is to discipline the inappropriate behaviors, and then ignore the good behaviors. In potty-training, discipline (which could be as gentle as a sharply said NO) doesn't necessarily teach him he shouldn't go THERE. It teaches him he shouldn't GO. At least not in front of you. Not the right message.
Praising and treating the appropriate behavior (when he goes outside) is how you show him what to DO. It's not enough to show him what not to do, especially if he doesn't understand it.

I am praising him when he potties out of doors. We haven't had any accidents today, so maybe we're getting somewhere.
