I have a new traveling around the house and outdoor painting set up. I purchased this aluminum portable easel last week. It is so light and very easy to set up compared to the French style outdoor easel I have.
Here is the little 4"x4" color study I did while the sun raced across the table. I think the painting gods were having fun moving the light and adjusting the brightness again.
I just purchased some of the (Artboard) wooden painting panels to try. This study was done on one I prepared with 2 coats Artboards gesso. I am going to experiment with these boards for the next few days.
