Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Kyneton South this morning. 
I found this spot along Kyneton-Springhill Rd overlooking Lauriston Reservoir the last time I painted in this area, and always wanted to paint from here. 

My friend Tim joined me soon after. It’s always nice to have a good company. 

I really enjoyed this one. Although the light changed constantly, it was very pleasant. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

Then we decided to have another go. There’re many good subjects to choose. 
But, I thought I should do a tree study. 

It’s a great idea to focus on a tree, trying to observe its tonal structure carefully. I enjoyed this one, too. 
I spent 1.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 8x11 in. 

Weather was perfect. It’s been a long time since I had so much pleasure painting outdoors. 
It was a great day.
