Original Oil Painting on a 5x7 inch Masonite panel.

My little pochade box allows me to set up and paint “sight size”, where my painting is aligned side-by-side with the view. This allows for an easy comparison between the painting and the scene, and always seems to add something extra to the painting. That’s how this painting was done.
     I’m also showing today’s painting in front of the view. It’s easy to see how a painting will come together more easily when you can position your easel so that you have a one-to-one comparison with what you’re painting.
     If you haven’t tried it, I suggest doing that when you have a chance. You’ll enjoy it I’m sure.
     One key to making this fun is to travel very light so that you can set up in a minute or two wherever you plan to paint. It’s important to take everything you need while still keeping your gear light.
     My entire painting kit fits in a small briefcase. It weighs about one pound and carries everything I needed to do this painting (the pochade box with wet paints and my painting inside, my tripod, brushes, and even a refreshing snack). Setup took me less than 2 minutes and I was ready to paint.
     I hope you’ll give it a try. And let me know how you enjoyed it. I’d love to hear about your own experiences. HAPPY PAINTING.
