Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to SeaWorks in Williamstown this afternoon. 
I’ve been here many times, it’s always very quiet, and there’s this gorgeous boat ‘Stardust’. 

I changed a composition a bit. More than anything else, I tried to capture the effect of light. And the distance to Melbourne skyline. In previous paintings, it looked too close. 
I’m reasonably happy with this one. Certainly the best one so far on this subject. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Now, ice cream and a long walk along the water. It’s a beautiful day. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in.
