Plein Air Oil Painting

I went to Fairfield Boat House.
Because it's a weekday, there weren't many people and it was very peaceful and quiet.

I'm reasonably happy with its proportion. However, when it comes to painting the effect of light with oil colours, I'm still struggling.

Pale green leaves, Yarra River and everything else were catching lights, but, I couldn't paint that. They all ended up looking kind of smoky.
I will seek Greg's help.

It's very frustrating, really. I need a lot more practice.

Oil on panel. 16 x 20 in.
