Plein Air Oil Painting

I drove to Cannons Creek in Mornington Peninsula this morning. 
This is the second time, it’s a lovely place, very quiet. 
I decided to set up my easel here. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Water is always difficult to paint, and putting figures in the painting is tricky when it cuto scale. 
I spent 2.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 14x18 in. 

After quick lunch, I did a second one. By this time, high tide reached a shore, I had to move up higher ground. A study of water. I’m not so sure about this one. 
I spent 1.5 hours. 

Oil on canvas. 8x11 in. 

Then I took a walk along the shore. Beautiful area. Watching sunset was very meditative and peaceful. 
This trip probably the last one for now. It was a great summer. I’m very happy to have discovered this area.
