Roomy 14x18x11” Pittman palette and field bag with zippered interior section that holds a tremendous assortment of gear and supplies and a separated bottom compartment with built in stiffener that securely holds a combination of any covered watercolor palette, drawing pad, canvas or watercolor block up to 14x16” in size! Features 7, 2-1/2” wide x 5-1/2” high outside pockets on one side for holding brushes, pencils, pens and other gear and a 18” wide x 4-1/2” high zippered compartment on the other side. Special dual use handles may be used as shoulder straps as well.
Well, as much as I stuff into this bag, it better be ok to use the straps as shoulder straps! It weighs a ton at times, depending on how much extra I put in there for special projects - like misket fluid and a whole roll of paper towels and scissors and tracing paper and graphite paper and...well, you get the idea! Plus I seem to need to take lots of paint tubes with me that I don't need because I have my John Pike palette in the bottom of the thing.
So...time to consolidate and think about weight.
I have to minimize what I can take with me so I can go next Tuesday. To tell the truth, I really didn't feel up to going today but maybe by next week I'll be ready to go - and will have a smaller bag and less stuff then.
