Sim­ple and com­pact setup

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Start by as­sem­bling a com­pact plein-air setup that en­ables you to start paint­ing and clean­ing up eas­ily. Mine com­prises a sketch­book, my paint box, a small jar of wa­ter, a small spray bot­tle to keep the paint wet, mask­ing tape, tooth­picks for prep­ping the paint, paper tow­els and my brushes in a bam­boo matt. I keep all this in a small bag ex­cept for the paint box, which needs to be car­ried. I also have a sim­ple fold-out ta­ble in­stead of a pricey pochade box, where I can rest my wa­ter and paint, and use the ta­ble top as the mix­ing sur­face.
