Plein Air Oil Painting

Because of hot weather in Melbourne, I decided to drive to Warneet in Mornington Peninsula, thinking it would be much cooler. 
Well, it wasn’t. Never mind. 
I set up my easel here at North Jetty. 

I painted from this point before, I stepped back a bit to incorporate more depth. 
It was a low tide, showing skeleton shapes of the jetty which,  I thought,  would be a good exercise. 

Again, I had a hard time painting straight lines. Apart from that I’m reasonably happy with this one. 
I spent 3 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

As usual, I had a great fish&chips from General Store. Lying on a bench writing this. It’s lovely here with cool sea breeze. 
I’m not sure how hot Melbourne is now. 
I think it’s time to go home now.
