Tim Murphy exhibition, Plein Air Painting

I drove to Pipers Creek in Kyneton this morning to see my friend Tim’s exhibition as part of Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival. 

His small paintings are irresistible, mostly still life and plein air paintings. 
As a matter of fact, I bought this one. 

His parents have created a gorgeous garden in their property. It’s really impressive and beautiful. 
This is my favourite. 

My friend Paul joined me and we set up easels here. 

It was sunny at the beginning but it soon got very windy and cold. It was so difficult to paint that I almost gave up on this one. 
I just managed to finish it, but, not entirely happy. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

Then we had a drink in a wool shed. 
Although it wasn’t pleasant to paint, I had a great day with lovely people.
