New to plein air? Here are a few tips to help get you started.
Easel One that is easy to carry palette -
wooden palette that you can clip to your easel or disposable. I use a 12 x 16 that fits in my wet canvas carrier
Wet canvas carrier
Paints - I suggest a simple palette to start with
White - a big tubeCool red and blueWarm red and blue
Cad Yellow light or something similar
Any other colors that make you happy
If working in oils you will mix a lot of your colors. If working in acrylic, you might bring more pre mixed colors to help with dry time. Also a retarder and spray bottle for misting the color and a container for water to clean brushes
Brushes and palette knife of your choice
Brush cleaner and container with a tight lid to keep from spilling
Any medium you use to thin your paint.
Bottled water and a snack.
Chair and or table only if you want to carry it!
Sunscreen and bug spray
