Portable and Field Easels


Portable and Field Easels are designed for artists who plan on traveling with their easels, need to be able to easily move them around their studio, or who want to plein air paint. These easels fold to a compact size for easy storage and portability and are considerably lighter weight. These easels usually contain the minimal necessities to successfully use them effectively.

French Style Easels

French Style Easels are similar to sketch box easels because they consist of a box for storage, and a lid that folds up to act as the easel, but French Style easels also have tripod style legs. When opened completely they become full sized easels, but if the legs are left closed they can be used as table top easels. Many artists like this type of easel for plein air painting because they can stand at it while they work and it has enough room to carry all their necessary supplies.

 

Pochade Boxes are compact boxes that allow the artist to keep all of their supplies in one location and work on the inside of the lid. These boxes are traditionally used for plein air painting but can also be used in the studio, home, or classroom. Since pochade boxes are used for travel and plein air painting, the maximum size canvas or work surface is quite small, usually not over 12".

 
Aluminum Tripod Field Easels

Folding Tripod Easels are metal easels, with three legs, that fold up easily for storage and transportation. These easels are a good alternative to sketchbox easels and are lighter to carry for plein air painting. Many are for vertical painting, but some do lay flat for watercolor work.
