Painting trip to Grampians - Day 2

In the morning I drove to Hamilton. 

There's a wonderful exhibition by John Wolseley at Hamilton Gallery. I think I'd seen it at NGV. This is a beautiful gallery. 

I had a takeaway sandwich at Tosca Browns. A funky cafe. I like it a lot. 

It was still very windy and rained heavily every 10 minutes. So, I definitely needed a shelter. 
I was driving around, and finally found it at Lake Hamilton. I set up my easel here. 

Even under the shelter, because the wind and rain was so bad that I had to hold a board and paints on palette got lots of rain. It was a big challenge. I think I need to trim top of the tree. It's too big. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on panel. 16x20 in. 

After late lunch, weather was still bad, I was at a loss, didn't know where I should be painting. 
By accident, I drove by a railway station, and found a house that offers a shelter at the entrance, so I set up my easel here. 

Compositionally this set up must have been a mistake, but I was desperate. 
I spent 2 hours. I got some compliments from locals, that was nice. 

Oil on panel. 16x20 in. 

Again, I had a lovely dinner with my host. It was a great day.
