Painting with Maggie

Got busy last Sunday on another painting of the penninsula. I happend to catch a splended clear afternoon with just a little fall color.Will show when complete. Here is my set up in my Honda Element. I took the seats out and use bunjies to strap stuff to the sides. Maggie is very content to hunker down as I spend the day painting behind the truck. I sometimes use the tailgate as a seat and when I put a windshield cover over the back window which pops up, it creates a great sunshield. I prefer to paint on birch plywood panels called "elephant board."I prime them red as an underlayer for landscape because it can make the greens pop. Sometimes I use a light sienna. My wet boxes are pizza boxes. Light, fit 10-12in panels and they're free.
