"Field In February" ©

The sun showed herself today and a few of us went out painting in what we call "Rod's field". I can walk there from my place and I was thinking how lucky I am to have a lovely spot so close to home.
Oil on panel, 8" X 10"

Hi! Wonderfull to see you work on location. I wondered what you do with the wet panel when going home. And the pallette...a waist to throw it away I suppose.
Helas we can't get those easels here in Holland, I work on my lap always. (or break my back by carrying a french easel).
Keep up the inspiration!
Best wishes, Marjolein

Looks like it will be beautiful Laura!... Glad you had a great time.
Isn't it great when there are beautiful spots right near your home??

Marjolein.... don't know what shipping would be to Holland, but EasyL and other companies that make the pochade boxes and wet canvas carriers do ship. I bought mine online.

Marjolein, Marian is right, in America we have several companies that build easels for outdoor painting. The one in my photo is an EasyL (11" X 14") by Artwork Essentials. I also have several Guerrilla boxes that are designed for both a tripod and your lap. They are balanced and won't tip over for "in the car" painting. Also check out Open Box M and Soltek. If you google Pochade Box a bunch will come up. The EasyL has a wet panel carrier built in the back for 2 panels, a great feature. All of them are much easier to use then the French easel. Happy shopping! Laura

Thanks! I've been shopping around :) Quite an investment (up to 200 postal costs added), but I bet worth it. Thanks for the information!
