Plein air at Goolwa

























The afternoon sun was getting low at the Goolwa railway siding and long shadows were being cast along the tracks. It did get a bit chilly sitting in the shade but well worth it. I have seen this spot a few times and now at last I have painted it.

Wonderful plein air painting, Mike! One can clearly note the difference between the colors recorded by the camera and the human eye. Pictures clicked by the camera has very high contrast and the darks are flat. But our eyes are able to see the subtle color changes in the shadows and this is a very important lesson learnt while painting outdoors.
Mike, even I've did some plein air studies in watercolor recently, which I've posted on my blog today. Hope you see it.
And many thanks for the link to Jeremy Mann's website. I was really awestruck by his nocturne paintings.
Best,
Ramesh
