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.
