Golden Gate Bridge 8 x 10

When painting trips include air travel, I pack small 6x8 and 8x10 panels into a cigar box. The panels are linen, mounted on museum board; so thin that I can get 30 in the little cigar box. The best source of these panels is through When I have an abundance of panels, each one doesn't become so precious that I am afraid to let the paint fly. Travel paint is usually Griffin Alkyds by Winsor Newton. This paint drys overnight; and allows the painting to get back into the cigar box pretty quick. I like to get at least 3 to 4 small studies done each day when I travel to a location that is dense with material. Never know when you'll get back. The study included with this post was done in San Francisco. Some of these small paintings are studies for larger studio paintings and some stand on their own, like Golden Gate Bridge. This painting can come to your home for $185.00  SOLD
