Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Malmsbury this morning. 
I love this town, about an hour drive north-west of Melbourne. 

I wanted something different today, so, instead of painting in Botanical Gardens, I decided to set up my easel here at a railway station. 

I struggled with perspectives of this subject. I carefully measured angles, but, there's something wrong with this painting. 

I had some great chats with locals, they're very nice. 
I spent 3 hours on this one. 

Oil on panel. 16x20 in. 

It was a beautiful day. Very uplifting. 

I booked a painting trip to Grampians in Octorber. 
There was a great exhibition by Arthur Streeton at Geelong Gallery early this year. I was very inspired, and in this trip I will be retracing the places he painted. 
I'm very looking forward to it.
