Painting trip to Lorne -Day 4

Today is the last day of our trip. 
Honeysuckle Cottage is a very charming place to stay. We're so lucky to have found this peaceful place. It was actually very sad to leave. 

Then we drove to Erskine Falls. I liked it a lot. 

We decided to stop over again at Aireys Inlet because we loved the lighthouse very much. 

This time, we sat on a folding chair and did a pochade box painting. 

We spent about 1.5 hours. Dark clouds started to clear towards the end, and it was very quiet. We had a great time. 

Oil on panel. 7.5x9 in. 

We dropped by Geelong Gallery. This exhibition of our favourite painter was definitely one of the best exhibitions we've been to this year. 
Streeton's masterful way of capturing the effect of light is truly magical. We just kept looking at them, stepping back and forwards, trying to study as much as we can. 
It's not a blockbuster exhibition as such, but, I think this one is very important and worthwhile. I'm so glad that the gallery put together these great paintings. 

Oh, by the way, I bumped into Herman Pekel in the gallery, and said hello to him. He's my favourite painter and it was a big bonus!

It was a very fruitful holiday trip. We loved it every minute of it.
