Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Eildon, 2 hour drive north-east of Melbourne, this morning. 

I was a bit lost trying to find a good location for painting. And there are plenty. 




After lunch, I finally decided to paint from here. It's near the corner of Goulburn Valley Hwy and Pinniger Rd, looking towards south-west. 


Water is always a challenge. It often ends up very monotonous. I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on panel. 16x20 in. 

Then, I drove back to Eildon Dam, and set up my easel here, looking towards east. 


Again, water!!  This one is a failure, I'm afraid. I spent 2 hours and gave up. 

Oil on panel. 16x20 in. 

The area is very beautiful. It's a long drive, but worth it.
