Painting trip to Majorca - Day 4

My intention was, drive to Laanecoorie, but, I found this interesting view on my way to Carisbrook. It’s near a corner of Williams Rd and C288. Beautiful autumn colours lining up towards a house were just stunning. 

I’ve found a way to attach an umbrella to the easel, and it just worked fantastically today. Like this. 

I think the foreground is a bit boring. I thought of putting sheep in, but, they were not there. Also, I was afraid I would ruin the painting. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

Then I drove up to Laanecoorie, but, there wasn’t anything inspiring. Then, Tarnagulla and Moliagul. Nothing! I ended up driving to Dunolly. Somehow I wasn’t in a mood of painting there. 
By then, I gave up painting this afternoon. It was already 3pm. So, I decided to go to Clunes Booktown Festival. 

However, a miracle happened. Around Talbot, I came across this gorgeous view. It’s at a corner of King St and C287. 

It was just a magic. As the sun went down, the colours and tones became stunning. I had to be very quick. I’m very happy with this one. However, the shadows at foreground are dodgy, I have to say. I need to ask Greg. 
I spent 2 hours.
