Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Westerfolds Park in Templestowe this afternoon. 
There’s a beautiful Manor House on the top of the hill, but, it’s abandoned. It’s a pity really. 

I’ve painted this one before a couple of times, from behind. I’ve decided to paint from front today. 

The structure of the building is fairly complex. I tried not to lose sight of its big picture. 
I lost beautiful shadows half way through and it got very cloudy. That was very tricky. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in.
