It has been freezing cold here in the North East and what better time to be hitting the studio. We are starting to get a bit of cabin fever and I am so looking forward to getting outside to paint again. On that note I thought I would post about my newest addition to the studio. This was a Christmas gift from my husband. It is an Alla Prima Pochade box. I have a small 6 x 8 Guerilla Thumbox which I adore (I have the acrylic set up) and is perfect for 5 x7 and 6 x 8 panels and is so easy to take along. But I have been wanting something for the slightly bigger panels. I love working with 8 x 10's and 11 x 14s.
These gorgeous Alla Prima boxes are handmade here in the U.S. by Ben Haggert. This model is the 11 x 14 Bitterroot and it perfect for my 8 x 10 and 11 x 14 panels. It also has a plate for a tripod. I LOVE it!!! And Ben is a real pleasure to do business with. Highly recommended. Here is the link for more info Bitterroot Pochade. Can't wait to get outside and use it!
Off to finish that little foal painting sitting on the pochade!

thanks for this. I've had my eye on these boxes for a while.
Ben is a genius. I've kept a link for his boxes on my site for months, even though I'm not a plein air painter, simply because his boxes are so clever...and beautiful.
