Again, one of the benefits of painting in the cold is that the paint does not run or drip. And it stays on one's brush or palette knife very well, almost too well. It doesn't want to let go! And somewhat amusing, when one puts down a brush, to change colour or to sip coffee, it freezes to the palette board, or, in my case, the piece of coroplast I was using as a flat surface upon which to place bottles of paint and rags.
Several people chose to sit or kneel on the cement, no doubt wishing they had an easel or other means of holding their canvas. I have an ancient bundle-buggy to which I tape or clothes pin the coroplast. I use a bungie cord and cloth strip to further stabilize my "canvas."
