Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Montsalvat in Eltham this morning. 

Its founder, Justus Jorgensen, was a student of Max Meldrum and spent many hours painting in the area. It’s a fascinating history of Australian tonal realism painters. 

It’s really a lovely place with charming buildings, gardens and sculptures scattering around, in the mean time, there are some peacocks wandering about, making funny sounds. 

I decided to set up my easel here. 

It was very peaceful. I enjoyed every single minute painting this. I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

After quick lunch, I decided to do another one from here. 

I think shadows are not dark enough. I need to do some work on this one. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

It was a lovely day. I’ll definitely come back again.
