Plein Air Oil Painting

Well, the idea was, driving to Warburton, 1.5 hour drive north east of Melbourne, and doing some painting. I had so many recommendations from my clients. 

I found it's very touristy. Lots of cafes and shops along Yarra River. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but, I just couldn't find a good spot for painting. 

Then I thought, going to the summit of Mt Donna Buang. I had read about this place, offering a spectacular view. 
About a half way through, due to bad weather, I just couldn't see anything. I had to chuck a u-ey. I should've known better. 

Anyway, I decided to go back to Healesville, and paint at a railway station. 
A tourist train was running today, so, I chose this spot, trying to capture the moment when the train was approaching the station. 

I spent 3 hours. I don't know why, I felt paints were not moving smoothly on a panel today. Sticky. This thing happens from time to time. I need to adjust the contents of the medium. 

Oil on panel. 16x20 in.
