Plain Air Oil Painting

I drove to Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens in Olinda this afternoon. 
It’s been a long time since I was here, and this gorgeous weeping cherry tree caught my eyes. 

The light kept changing, that was very annoying, and I had to say, there were so many Asian tourists standing right behind me talking with each other and taking photos. I put AirPods in my ears listening to Beethoven, trying not to be distracted by them. 

There’s big errors on the reflections that need to be fixed. Apart from that, it was most enjoyable painting this one. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

Then, I took a long walk in the garden. It was a bit too early for cherry blossoms but there are many beautiful flowers. It’s really a great place to spend a sunny afternoon in spring.
