Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Kyneton this morning. 
Paul supplies us with painting panels. For storage purposes, I've decided to get canvases without panels from now on, so that they don't occupy any space, and very light when painting en plein air. 

We decided to do some paintings together near his place, and we set up our easels here, somewhere in Fordes Lane. 

It's a beautiful place. Very quiet. While painting, we had a great chat about art and painting. I really enjoyed it. 
I spent 2 hours. 

Oil on panel. 12x16 in. 

We decided to do one more, and I chose this angle from the same spot. 

This one is very tricky. There's not much happening here, so, I needed to focus on subtle tonal differences. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on panel. 16x20 in. 

He is very passionate about art. We just kept talking about painting. I had a fabulous time painting with him. 
It really was a great day.

Morning Hiro. That spot on Fordes Lane is indeed a great place to paint; I know it well: House on Fordes Lane near Kyneton.
