My New Plein Air Umbrella by Best Brella!
I am participating this week in the Great Chattahoochee River Paint Out and thankfully I got my new umbrella in time. It was so hot and sunny today and I wouldn't have been able to be out there in the sun without the umbrella. I have to give a plug for the Best Brella. It was so easy to set up and adjust. I was able to keep adjusting the angle as the sun moved keeping my set up and me in the shade! This was a test for my plein air set up that I am bringing to the Richard McKinley workshop next month. I am using an Easy-L easel on my old Bogen tripod. I have a small box of pastels in the tray but I can use my Heilman box if I bungee it to the tray. I was in too much of a rush this morning to fuss with it! It all worked great now I just need to get it all out to California!
