Paint Out Day

We drove to Banksia Park in Buleen, about 20 min drive north-east of Melbourne. 
John from Victorian Artists' Society has been organising this monthly paint out day. 

We set up our easels here. 

I spent 2 1/2 hours on this one. Again, I tried to measure overall production very carefully. There wasn't much colour in this subject, so I focuses on tonal shift in the painting. 
I think I should have knocked down tones of tall trees bordering with sky area. 

Oil on panel. 16 x20 in. 

After lunch, I decided to do some study of this tree. 
I spent 1 1/2 hours. Again, tones of top area should have been less strong towards sky. I seem to have trouble seeing it correctly. 

Because it was Easter Sunday, there was a small group of artist today, but it was great to see good friends again, painting together. 

It was a good day. 

Oil on panel. 11 x14 in.
