The Pond, Nockamixon State Park,16x20 oil painting
I had a few days in July to gather material for some new paintings. I spent one day at Nockamixon State Park, they have a small pond in the one area of the park where I was able to sit at the picnic table and do a 5x7 sketch to help familiarize myself with the scene.
This cigar paintbox is very portable and great for when you want to do a few sketches even though you will be doing a lot of walking. The block of wood in the middle of the palette keeps the paints from smearing when the lid is shut. I have a t-nut on the bottom that attaches to a tripod when I want to use it that way.
