The easel attaches to a quick release plate on the tripod. I clipped the watercolor sketchbook to the plywood backboard and painted across the gutter. The palette panel could be set up on either side.
The air was just above freezing, so I was able to use casein colors. Most of this is painted with a half-inch flat travel brush. I did this field study as reference for a studio painting, which I've been documenting for an upcoming instructional video.
