Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Le Page Homestead in Hawkstowe this afternoon. Although very windy, it was very pleasant afternoon. 
I found a good place to set up my easel under a tree, giving me a decent distance to the Homestead. 

It’s frightening to realise how easily our eyes are fooled. The shed on the right was at first too low. I needed to wipe it off. 
The yellow fence looks too slanted now. I need to fix it. 
I love this place, keep coming back. There are hardly anyone in here on Christmas Eve. Very peaceful. I took a long walk after painting. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in.
