Steering wheel easel goes viral

OutdoorPainter Magazine website

Almost! When I posted a few pictures of my steering wheel easel online I was hoping to encourage other Australian plein air painters and sketchers to keep at it through the winter. I hadn’t counted on it escaping overseas to find people wanting to make them as far away as the United States and Europe.

First up, James Gurney mentioned it. (Yes, that is the James Gurney who wrote Dinotopia. If you’re not following his art blog you should be!)

Then Plein Air Today, the enewsletter sent out by Plein Air Magazine, published an extended article. You can subscribe to the newsletter and read their story on the Outdoor Painter website.

I’m delighted, hopefully lots more people will find it a little easier get outside to draw and actually do it. 🙂
