Boat Launch

It’s still testing week for me. I packed the new and improved version of my travel sketch kit, and unpacked it at the Beaconsfield Yacht Club. I worked from my folding chair, with my Stablo Easel on my lap.

The lap easel is great. I clipped a pad of watercolour paper to it, and the only issue I had is that when I angle it too much, or over-fill the cup, the water spills out a bit onto my feet. But that is a minor issue than I can overcome if I pay attention to it. A while ago I put out a video about my plein air sketching tools. Recently I added a new demo about working while seated. In the video, I show the Stablo easel, as well as using a piece of Coroplast to attach your gear to. If you’re interested, have a look.

    I love these sketches you do of working or industrial spaces – so interesting – they beg for a story…. This is beautiful as usual :).

    Thanks too for the free kit instruction – so appreciated. I always paint seated so am looking forward to this one :).

    I have an account with you as I own several of your courses. I have tried and tried signing in and even went for a new password and have not been able to do so. I am so disappointed as I was looking forward to this video as I love to go out to sketch. Please advise.
