Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Tooradin Jetty in Mornington Peninsula, 1.5 hour drive south-east of Melbourne, this afternoon. 

I usually drive north to paint, but, I thought I needed to explore different areas. I had no idea about this place, I just found it while browsing Map on my iPhone last night. 

As it turned out, it’s really a great place to paint. East Link has made a huge difference to the trip to this region. 

It’s relatively quiet for Sunday, I thought. It wasn’t too hot either. 
Well, I think I made a compositional mistake. I should have chosen closer viewpoint, focusing on the boats, rather than trying to put a whole thing in the painting. It seems lacking in the focal point. 

I’ll definitely come back and try it again. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in.
