Plein Air Oil Painting

I'm at John Morley Reserve in Williamstown, basking in the glorious late afternoon sunshine. 

Earlier in the day, I decided to come here with no reasons. No idea about weather, either. 
I painted from this spot a couple of times before, but, I wasn't happy. 

It was cold, windy and cloudy. 
I carefully checked angles and proportions of the building (Williamstown Sailing Club). Also very mindful that Melbourne CBD won't come forward, staying at the back. 

I wasn't happy particularly because of the treatment of yachts. I didn't know how to deal with them. There were so many of them. 
So, I tried to get overall impression right this time, without any details. 

I think I did a better job today, although there's always room for improvements. 
I spent 3.5 hours. 

Once in a while, I allow myself to savour ice cream. There's a good shop around here. That's where I'm heading now. Probably fish & chips as well :)
