Plein Air Oil Painting

In the morning I drove to Marysville, 1.5 hour drive north-east of Melbourne. This is a very scenic drive. One of my favourites. 

I haven't been back since Black Saturday bush fire, so it was great to see the town seems to rise again from ashes. Well, it's easy for me to say that, but, I'm sure the loss, sufferings and traumas are still tangible in the hearts and minds of the residents. 
Very nice to see Bruno's Art & Sculpture Garden again. 

I drove another 1/2 hour to Lake Mountain Alpine Resort. I was planning to do a painting on the top, but, instead I did some walk around here, and had a late lunch. 

Then I went back to the town and decided to set up my easel here at Gallipoli Park. This is just behind the Information Centre. 

It was very quiet. Very relaxing. Beautiful lights reflecting on a river, sparkling just like jewels. And birds chirping. Nothing else. 
I spent 3 hours. 

Oil on panel. 16x20 in.
