Paint Out Day with Gregory Smith

We went to Mordialloc Creek, about half an hour drive south of Melbourne.
It was a cloudy day, but there was no wind, so, we didn't have to worry much about changing light.
I've never painted yachts and water. Greg had set up his easel here, so we did too.

As he told me during the session, this is a very "hard workout" for me.
There are so many elements in this that I found it extremely difficult getting overall proportion right.
I spent about two hours before a lunch break.
I think I did ok with this one. I'm sure there are many errors of tones and proportions.
However, I did enjoy painting this scene with likeminded artist friends.
I watched Greg's sky study in the afternoon, and as usual, it was very inspiring. I appreciate his passion for painting a lot.
