9 April 2009 Pochade
Here is my smaller pochade, or thumb-box, which I have now adapted to take four 8x10 canvas boards.
See the thumbhole in the base, which means that you could use this freestanding. I need to cover this with something to prevent the paint tubes falling out!
The folding lid holds 4 canvas boards. In the background you can see some which I have prepared with a wash of colour to avoid painting on a pure white background. I can take boards with a variety of colours for a days painting en plein air.
The pallette slides into grooves in the box.
Next task is to add an attachment so that the box will fit onto a camera tripod.
