diff pastel setup

Summer Canal 9x12 pastel
Farm Silo 11x14 pastel
I was frustrated with my pastel set up so I dug out an old Mabef oil box and tore out all the separators ad stuffed as many pastel sticks into it as possible. The next step was to  find a way to make it portable. That was the hard part. I ended up just sticking it into an old aluminum tripod. I seems to work ok. When the weather warms up I will have to give it a field try out. The board is 1/8" masonite coated with clear acrylic gesso made for pastels. I'm just loving the texture. In the past it was hard to deal with but now it feels good.
