"My intention was to create a watercolor easel that would honor the spirit of outdoor painting. This easel enables painters working in any medium to follow in the footsteps of masters like Constable, Delacroix, Corot, Sargent, and Zorn, who utilized watercolor sketches as a means to travel light and gather information for their studio paintings.
