MANY TIMES I've been asked about how I travel with canvas for painting en plein air, particularly when traveling overseas. More recently, artists have inquired about the compact storage of paintings. Since these two topics intersect, I'll demonstrate my process of preparing canvas to take "on the road."
This is nothing new or uniquely orginal. I adapted much the idea from a student I had in Monet's garden a few years ago. She painted in thin oil washes, but I generally paint in acrylic when traveling, so this method works well for both media.
