Nice work Nolan  :clap:.

This being an oil painting which take time to dry .. i.e to avoid smudging - any special container to take it back to studio  ?

I painted in acrylic so it was dry by the time we have packed up. Dennis painted in oil so you just attach the painting to the pochade box during transport. You do have to be careful regardless - Dennis still got a bump on his painting that he had to fix when we got home.
I have just ordered a set of THESE canvas clips for next time we go plein air painting.

All because Dennis had brought business cards with him. That is why you never go painting plein air without them O0
