After years of using paper plates, discarded tins and DIY contraptions for my oil pallets I decided to splurge and get some proper oil plein air gear. A few months ago I found the Daytripper Easel by Prolific Painter online and have been salivating over it ever since. Last night I put my money on the table and ordered one. If the larger Road tripper gets released I’ll be in line for it as well, that looks more my size. The weather is stunning outside, can’t wait to get back on the trail and test out the new gear.
