Plein Air Oil Painting

In the morning, I drove to Kanesburgh Gardens in North Brighton. This plein air event was organised by Glen Eira Artists’ Society. 

Rachel took us around the gardens. I found everybody was very friendly. The garden houses Anzac Hostel, a beautifully maintained mansion. 
We were able to go upstairs, and I decided to paint from a veranda. 

I really enjoyed this one. It gave me a very interesting viewpoint. And very quiet. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

As it got cloudy, I was wondering if I should do another one or not. Everyone else had gone home. Well, it took me 50 min to get here, so, I decided to do it after lunch. 

This fountain was irresistible, so I set up my easel here. 

Then Phil came and joined me. I’ve never met him before, but, we had a good chat. 
Towards the end, it started to rain, but, I was able to finish it. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in.
