At a recent plein air show I realized that about 30 percent of my paintings are painted in the rain. Well, not exactly IN the rain. Now that I have the Travelite wet panel carriers I find it more convenient to paint from the car. Since the 6 x 8 inch wet panel carrier is portable and self contained, I can use it as a rainy-day-easel. I just open the lid and paint the panel right in the box. When I'm done I just close the lid to hold the wet panel in place. Sure, I join the guys at the coffee shop while it rains but I take 15 minutes and paint the coffee shop before I join them.
