Recommended equipment and gear for plein air painting
This list is just a guide. Ultimately, the equipment you use, is entirely up to you.
Safety should always be the first consideration.
It's a good idea to have a plein air umbrella. They provide cover from rain and also provide shade on those bright sunny days. There are several styles and colors available. Some have poles that stick in the ground while some attach directly to your easel system. Some have a reflective outer coating with a black colored interior, while others are a cool white.
