Getting Some Oils Out





















This is a little oil sketch that I did of the Hollywood Hills above Forest Lawn.  A few years ago my dad gave me a pochade box that he made out of an old chisel box.  It holds the paint, medium, brushes, and two 8X10 panels.  It can even carry the two panels with fresh wet paint and not have them touch.  It's a paint box, pallet, and easel all in one and it's only about  a little over one inch thick.  Most of the ones you can buy are super expensive and are at least twice that thickness.  Anyway, it's really cool and great for carting around and doing quick sketches.   I hadn't done any in quite some time and it was really fun.
