Bitteroot Lite

I’ve had my Bitteroot Lite for about 2 years now, and I use it in my studio as well as outdoors. That way I am always used to it. I love the side panels and cutouts for laying brushes flat. I’m contemplating putting glass in for a palette/mixing area – currently I use a medium size Masterson stay-wet palette with an old picture frame that fits inside so I have a glass surface. I set this palette on top of the Bitteroot. I wish I had bought a larger model as I don’t work on the size of panels that fit inside mine. Instead, I made myself a panel carrier out of coroplast and made a twill bag with shoulder strap to carry it. It holds up to 3 11×14″ panels. I use 8×10″ terraskin paper and mount it to the panels using masking tape. I love that the Bitteroot Lite is lightweight and easy to set up and take down!
