Plein Air Oil Painting

It's been a long time since we had this gorgeous blue sky in Melbourne, so I decided to get somewhere near the water. I drove to Point Cook near Altona. I had no idea what this area would offer. 

Maps on my iPhone gave me a wrong direction (Come on! Apple), so it took me a long time to get to Cheetham Wetlands. It's painful to see a vast farm land has been transformed to a housing estate. It's almost as if the land was gang raped by developers. You know, that song by Eagles, The Last Resort. 

Anyway, to my surprise, there's a homestead. Although it was closed, I was able to walk there. 

It was very peaceful. Hardly anyone. I really enjoyed this one. Although it was very windy, I was able to finish it. I spent 2.5 hours. 
It's a beautiful space, and I'd like to come back again. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in.
