Roland Lee painting outdoors in Snow Canyon Utah

A small group of hearty artists braved a brisk 40-degree morning to paint outdoors in beautiful Snow Canyon State Park, near St. George Utah. We enjoy getting together once a month as members of the Dixie Watercolor Society to hone our plein air painting skills and have fun. In this case, our numbers were thin, due to a spring storm which rolled through overnight and dumped snow in the higher elevations all around us. We found a nice spot out of the wind with an excellent view of the canyon’s red cliffs and went to work. I used a new Sienna brand pochade box that was given to me as a gift by my friend Mark Rose. Mounted on a sturdy tripod it proved to my liking as it easily adjusted the height to my 6’1″ frame.  I customized it by adding an   Eldajon watercolor palette and collapsible water can. The Sienna paint box is available from A Passion for Painting.

The Sienna Pochade box has room for everything yet closes up into a compact box for carrying. A sturdy tripod has a a secure and speedy mounting clamp.
