One week in November spent in Cornwall yielded plenty of small paintings done plein air using a small pochade box. This was a little backstreet in the Village of Marazion by Penzance that offered just a glimpse of the sea at the end of the road. The box is pictured in the shot above and opposite. I usually have it on my knee or a tripod but here it is pictured on the floor as I add a few finishing touches to a painting out at Geevor mines, (see Jan 2nd post for painting I was working on). The photo shows my basic plein air set up. The rucksack carries everything that I need and I have attached a small fishing seat to the back that simply stays attached and opens out.
