new to Plein Air

Hello friends. I usually post on landscape forum but I am here today because I have ventured into plein air and not just studio as before. I spent the last week assembling and constructing supplies and implements for painting out doors. I re-purposed an old wood easel I had and built some attachments to be able to transport and paint easily. What I use is most likely not the final solutions but as for now my kit works great! Here are a couple of photos and the painting I did. "west of Lebanon" 9" X 12" oil on canvas panel.

nice one - a good crop of a view that at first appears uninspiring

Nice work, nice simple setup. Don't overcomplicate your setup if you are going to walk any distance from your vehicle.

Re: new to Plein Air

Thank to all of my friends. Always good advice and timely. The only thing that my easel does not have is extendable legs. That I will have to rectify by using a tripod type of solution. But for now it works great!
Here is another outdoor piece I just completed. Again just 9" X 12" on primed canvas panel.

Re: new to Plein Air

good work! I'm curious about how you attached the palette to the tripod. from the photos it looks like some sort of a sling?

Bongolian, I will see if I can post a photo soon showing how I attach the palette. Pretty simple but still in the experimental stage. :-)
Thanks to all for the kind comments. My wife is in hospital so outdoor excursions are not happening at this moment. DO'
