Outdoor Painters Video

Here is a link to a video that my friend Rusty Jones put together showing various members of the Outdoor Painters Society painting plein air in Big Bend National Park as part of the Plein Air Southwest competition. If you haven't visited the "OPS" or Rusty Jones web site you can find both links on this blog. If this video doesn't make you want to get out and paint I don't know what will. Great job Rusty!



  1. Randy,

    What is the Pochad box that is on a tripod and has a verticle extension? Do you or most of those painters have a favorite pochad box?

  2. Kathryn,
    I think you are talking about the Soltek easel. You can find more information at
    http://www.soltekarts.com/ I have always wanted one, but it is the most expensive of all the models at $500.
    I use one made by http://www.openboxm.com/
    Most everyone uses one of these or a French easel.
