|'Along the Salt River' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
I tired a new idea on my Arizona Paintout and I am very pleased with the results. For this trip I used 2 Art Profolio books. One was 5x7 and one was 8x10. They worked perfectly!
|Storing Finished Plein Air Pastels|
- Thin and Lightweight: These portfolios are thin and compact. They have polypropylene covers and non-glare top loading pockets. The size makes them easy to slip into a backpack or bag.
- Quality: They have heavy duty sleeves with black acid free insert papers. The cover is slick and durable.
- Fill with paper: I loaded my pages with an assortment of pastel papers in each insert. This gave me a protected place to hold the paper I would need. When I finished a painting I slipped it into an empty sleeve and removed a clean piece of paper for the next painting....efficient!
- Share your work: Since the finished pastels are protected in the clear sleeves it is easy to allow onlookers to look through your finished work without damage. Other storage solutions I have tried did not allow me to easily share my finished paintings.
- Protection: The clear sleeves provides great protection and it is easy to slip paintings in and out of the sleeves when needed. I did find that a bit of pastel dust would be left on the sleeve but it didn't effect the painting and it is easy to wipe the inside of the sleeve with a paper towel if needed.
