Plein Air Oil Painting

Because of bad weather forecast, I decided to go back to Healesville Railway Station, thinking that there's a shelter on the platform protecting me from rain and thunderstorms. Also, this is a good drive via Kinglake. 

There's a very charming tourist train operating on weekends, and I thought it will be a good subject. 


The tricky bit was, the train didn't stay there for long, I had to be very quick. 
I spent 3 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

Although I felt a storm was coming, I decided to do one more. 


This one was very hard. I've found it's extremely difficult to paint complicated mechanical structures, testing my ability to see them accurately. 
Not so happy but it was a great exercise. 
I spent 2 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 12x16 in.
