A word from the author:

As a plein air painter, I paint mostly outdoors. Since you're reading this book, you're probably a plein air painter yourself or would like to become one. I don't need to tell you why I enjoy painting outdoors so much. There's nothing better painting by a brook on an autumn day. The music of the water washes away the troubles of the world, and the solitude gives you the space to unpack your creativity and play.

One of the most rewarding ways to paint en plein air is to go out with the least equipment and materials possible. Backpacker Painting, the title of this book, sums it up. If I can squeeze whatever I need into my backpack, then I can paint anywhere my feet can take me.

But Backpacker Painting isn't just an approach to equipment and materials. It's also an attitude. If you approach the act of painting outdoors with the philosophy of portability, you can practice "backpacker painting" anywhere.

Still plowing thru all the info in this book. I'm new to plein air painting but have been studio painting for many years. I would highly recommend this book for any level ....so many tips and techniques and what makes it so special is how Michael just speaks plainly and with a bit of humour.
