Been spending some time getting my gear back up to speed. Took the French easel out last week and did a F3 canvas of rice fields in harvest. That thing is heavy and requires constant maintenance so now I’m thinking it’s time to break out the pochade box. Unfortunately, the 8 x 10 inch canvas size of that pochade box fits no frames here in Japan at all, so now looking to purchase a new box that will work over here. In the meantime, I’ll stick to the French easel.
