I found this while thinking about ordering a new plein air set up for watercolour outdoors or in the car, looks handy

Yes Kevin it's a lot of work to make but I like the way its letting your hands be free.

Kyrle, Graham Booth used to have his home made one on his site with instructions how to make it, it was simpler than this one. My gouache set was taken out a few weeks ago but most of the tubes had gone hard, will order a few tubes

Very interesting Norah, but a lot of bother I would think. Personally, I don't get his bit with the ruler and for myself I find it much easier to sit on the passenger side of the car, push the seat back a little and put my painting on my lap like I do when out of doors. 'Simples' as Alexander the Meerkat would say!

Kyrle, you're not mixing Graham B up with his Northern Irish buddy, Paul O'Kane by any chance? He's the one with the gouache.

Great setup there Norah, ..Graham Booth had a similar idea last year, in graignamanagh. I'm getting to like the Gouache, god help me!! I like his stuff.
