Through sleet, snow and sub zero temperatures, the brave, plein air painter takes refuge inside his warm car with a cup of coffee and the tunes playing. I had a quick 45 minutes between dropping off my son at Lacrosse practice and picking up my daughter from day care. This snazzy little 5x7" pocket pochade box is perfect to bang out a quick one in the front seat. The lid will hold a wet painting and if you use a minimal palette, you can be painting in minutes. I'm using Cad Yellow medium, Alizeran Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna and Underpainting white....thats a little Liquin in that pallet cup too. Easy-peazy.

Great solution to miserable weather!! I really like the little painting, too!!
Hi Helen, thanks and good to see your name in the reply box. It's a great use of 45 minutes...I find myself thinking of ways to streamline it so I can just whip it out at a moments notice and do a quick one...for now, I keep the box ready on the floor of the passenger seat, I can open it to a fresh panel and start painting within minutes. It's the Guerilla. 5x7" pocket box..I love it!
