Thanks to everyone who have encouraged me to post a demo here.
I especially want to thank John Cox for his great posts and inspiring me to try the same thing... see his How I paint thread at.. http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show...hreadid=327977
I have taught at art schools and privately over the last several years and like John I am trying this on the internet for the first time. I am happy to have questions and am open to suggestions as I post and this will be a learning excersise for me too.
So down to business.... here is a picture of my portable "studio" This is my smallest paint box ... an old cigar box. I got the box for free and paid less than a dollar for studio tacks and paperclips to set up a working "pochade box"
For the cafes I work light and portable. I sometimes take My open M box .. http://www.openboxm.com/
..with a tripod when I work a little larger ( 9 x 12 inches) My cigar box is for tiny paintings ... studies really.. and they are aprox 5 x 7 inches. This box holds my paints.. medium, brushes and palette knife.
I can turn my wet painting around when I'm done and the red paper clips you see hold the surface away from the inside of the lid so my painting isn't ruined. I will describe my medium paints and palette in detail in the next post.
Please bear with me while I take you slowly through my posts... I paint much faster than I post!
