6" x 6" Oil on Panel
I've had a lot people asking how I paint in the car, it's pretty basic and pretty unglamorous. But her is the setup. I have my father's old pochade box and I manage to put most everything in here so things are pretty wedged and stable. I have a drop cloth on the seat and center console which helps in the Paint on The upholstery department. I'm still working on it but yesterday was my fourth car painting since the challenge started in January. I really like painting outside and has been so windy and cold recently that this has been good alternative. It would be tough to go much bigger than the small 6x6 paintings I have been doing. I'm hoping maybe I will have a new Strada Easel to try outside in February !!
After spending over 20 years photographing professionally I thought it was time to explore something new and experience my world with paint and a brush.
