Plein Air Oil Painting, Fred Williams

I drove to TarraWarra Museum of Art, an hour drive north-east of Melbourne, this morning. 

There’s a small exhibition of my favourite artist Fred Williams, and today is the last day. It’s alway inspiring to see his works. 
Another exhibition is a photographic work by Rosemary Laing. A collection of large scale landscapes. I used to get deeply moved by these, but, I’ve completely lost interest since I started painting. 

I bumped into my client at the entrance, immediately recognising her curly graduated bob style from behind. That’s very impressive, I think. 

Then, I drove to Healesville Railway Station, and set up my easel here. 

I’ve painted this view before, but wasn’t happy. Today, I tried to observe the effect of light more carefully, paying attention to subtle tonal shift. What do you think?
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in.
