Plein Air Oil Painting

Melbourne Cup Day. Am I supposed to be watching horses!!??

Because of bad weather forecast, I decided to go back to Le Page Homestead in Hawkstowe Park again. 

It wasn't bad actually, so, I set up my easel here. It's behind the building, and standing on its steep slope is a bit tricky. 

I painted here before without much success. This time, I was very careful measuring angles. I struggled a lot on this one. 
I spent 3 hours. 

Oil on panel. 16x20in. 

After late lunch, dark clouds started to dominate the sky. So I decided to seek a refuge under a shelter, and paint from here. 

And suddenly it was raining cats and dogs. It didn't last long, but, I was lucky to be able to avoid getting soaking wet. 
Then I saw a beautiful rainbow over a hill. I wish I could have painted that one. 

I spent 2 hours. It was a beautiful day. 

Oil on panel. 12x16 in.
