Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Westgate Park in Port Melbourne this morning. Because it’s Boxing Day, I thought traffic wasn’t too bad. 
As it turned out, this is a industrial area, but, it was very quiet today.
I found a good spot to paint. 

There was constant noise from the bridge, but it didn’t bother me. It’s kind of ‘white noise’, I guess. I enjoyed painting this one. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

It was just a pleasant afternoon, so I decided to do a small sketch. 
I drove along the river and found this spot. 

It’s a perfect subject to do a study of perspectives. I carefully checked angles whilst painting this one. The sun was still high above. 
Some leisure boats coming up and down, blasting horrible techno music, kind of drinking party for morons, I guess.  
Apart from that, it was very peaceful and I thoroughly enjoyed this one as well. 
I spent 1.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 12x8in. 

Then I took a long walk. It’s not a pretty area, but, weather was irresistible. 
It was a beautiful day. I’m glad I made a trip.
