My new gouache painting setup is so cute! ❤️

In a quest for improving my gouache plein air painting skills, I found the ‘perfect’ setup and want to share it with you!

First, I discovered the ingenious easel created by James Gurney. My friend Rett Longmore wrote about his version on my blog.

I planned to build my own simple version of his easel but I saw a little beauty for $80 on Etsy!

It was worth it because I’d rather paint than use a saw! 😆

Then via YouTube, I discovered talented Jared Cullum who introduced me to this awesome Art Tool Kit – now I’m so organized!

After a few weeks of deciding upon my gouache painting needs I finally christened my setup in this Reel!

Since I’m used to oil painting outside, this little setup makes me feel right at home. But, it’s so easy to pack, set up, and break down. I hope you like it!

Happy painting!
