Plein Air Painting - Seating stool

Kindly click on the image for a bigger view
This is an old sketch done couple of years back when I had started going outside to sketch more. This is the stool that I carry most of the time whenever and wherever I am going for plein air sketching or painting. This gives me the freedom to choose an angle of view of my choice to paint while seating comfortably unless there's a suitable place to seat down for which I'll have to be really lucky enough. It can be annoying at times to find a perfect viewpoint to sketch but nowhere to seat. Seating on the ground and paint is also not helpful  as the angle of view becomes up giving a weird perspective.

Just to add, this is a good quality camping stool which folds back and can be carried very easily. It's sturdy but light weight with a comfortable seating. It is easily available in sports shops who sells camping gears. There's a comfortable chair also which folds back and made of similar materials.

Medium: Waterproof gel ink pen with watercolor on sketchbook.
