This is another plein air piece from Isla Mujeres, Mexico. We've been back a few days and now that we're in the snow, we're wondering why we came back! But, I am so grateful that we are able to travel and how great is it that I can "work" where ever I am!
I now have several plein air easels and set ups and use them all at different times. For this trip, and for most overseas trips, I use a small, 8" x 10", Open Box M easel. I have a small, light weight tripod that telescopes into 5, instead of the usual 3, sections. I admit that it is not as sturdy as my other tripod, but it's compact. I take a limited palette of water based oils and use baby wipes for cleaning. I paint on canvas paper, usually in sizes 8" x 10" and smaller. The paints dry fairly quickly, so it's easy to pack the paintings for the trip home. However, I take a few pieces of pre-cut wax paper in case the paintings aren't quite dry. All of this fits in a small day pack, which I take as carry on. I include the TSA info sheet and have never had any problems.
