Off the Easel: Hanalei Bay

Sunday, June 24, 2018

You may recall that I did a plein air oil painting at Waioli Beach Park on the last day of our trip to Kauai, Hawaii. I was painting it the glare of sunlight (didn't pack my umbrella kit, to save space), so it was hard to see what I was doing. Figured it would need to be reassessed once I got home.

Curious about the setup? I use a Strada Micro 7-inch-square pochade box and an Easyl tripod. Since I was painting a panel that was vertically smaller than 7 inches high, I taped it to the back of an 8x10 panel so that it would fit. Doing this also enables me to carry the wet panel in my Raymar 8x10 wet panel carrier box.

Turns out the painting didn't need too much touching up after all.
