Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Warneet in Mornington Peninsula, 1.5 hour drive south-east of Melbourne, this afternoon. 
Last night, I was wondering where I should go and paint today. Because I liked Tooradin a lot, I thought I should try somewhere around the area. 

As it turned out, it’s a beautiful place. There are many spots I’d like to paint. This view somehow grabbed my eyes. I particularly liked the foreground leading to boats in the middle ground, then, to the sky. 

It got very cloudy and windy halfway through, and it was difficult to hold brushes. However, I really enjoyed this one. It’s a lot quieter than Tooradin, and there’re no ice cream or fish & chips shops. There’s a charming general store, though. 
I actually prefer this place. One of my favourite spots, really. I’ll definitely come back and do more paintings. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in.
