Not for tall artists
Comments about Winsor & Newton Aluminum Bristol Easels:
This easel seems stable enough. My problem with it is that I am 6' tall and the bottom bracket that holds the canvas will only come up so far. If I'm working on a smaller canvas I actually have to look down at it. I've done a work around by putting three 6" blocks under the feet but wish I didn't have to.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bristol Water Colour Easel 7006119
By Ron G
from Rochester, NY
Very light and rigid and sturdy. Well constructed square aluminum legs with handy rocker style locking toggles. Comes disassembled in its own semi-rigid carrying case. Great price. Best portable easel I've worked with.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Lightweight, easily adjustable, high functioning easil.

Sets up quickly indoors or outdoors. Exactly what I wanted.
Adequate for my needs
I will use this easel to demonstrate painting to beginning painters. As such, it should be adequate for my needs. The frame is light weight aluminum with adjustable legs, which will be very helpful. The only drawback I see is that the tray that the painting sits on is plastic (very light weight plastic) and has a tendency to be easily bumped off when there is nothing on it. However when a canvas sits on it, it holds on just fine.
versatile & mobile

This collapses easily and adjusts easily to hold canvasses over 30 x 40. It packs lightweight and light. You need to put it where noone might trip over the third leg of the tripod. The back leg might extend quite a bit.
I love Blick products, that is why I ordered it from Blick.

The easel is well-built and stable. I agree with another reviewer that the En Plein Aire shelf works well on its tripod, but did run into a problem with the watercolor holder impinging on the shelf when placed into too upright an orientation. I had bought the easel to use mainly in the field, and was disappointed that at least the watercolor holder would not hold a canvas or board less than about 15 inches in height, and the highest the shelf easel canvas holder would go is around 33 inches or so - too low for me. Also, I could not use the En Plein Aire shelf with that attached. I think it would be a good easel to use at home, especially if you have limited space and don't want to work very small, but it didn't work for my purposes. I returned it and Blick graciously refunded me.
