Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Flinders Blowhole in Mornington Peninsula National Park this afternoon. 
This place has become my favourite ‘retreat’ in this summer. 

It was very cloudy and tide is very low, so I decided to start a small painting as a study of waves. 

Actually I really enjoyed this one, although the foreground is a bit dodgy. I spent 1.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 12x8 in. 

Then gradually the sky started to open as I had hoped. After quick lunch. I set up my easel here. The similar viewpoint as the one I did about a couple of weeks ago. 

Observing waves is a fascinating exercise, let alone painting them. Tone, colour and form constantly change. I think this is better than the last one. I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

It was very peaceful, hardly anyone was around. Gorgeous sunset.
