An En Plein Air Easel for Every Painter

Four thoughtfully designed easels to fit the needs of plein air painters.

Introducing the ‘Professional Series’ oil or acrylic painting easel, designed for painters who paint larger than 16x12, yet it will still hold a 6x8 when needed. Perfect for outdoors, workshops and classes.

Created especially for outdoor use, En Plein Air Pro’s Advanced Series Oil and Acrylic Easel handles canvas panels or stretched canvas up to 12” x 16” or down to 6” x 8” (the most popular range for outdoor painting).

For the watercolorist we offer the 'Advanced Series' Watercolor Easel, which features our exclusive watercolor palette shelf with cover, and the 'Traveler Series', a compact setup that easily fits into a backpack. These easels can accommodate sketchbooks and paper up to a 1/4 sheet size.

Super Light Weight

All our systems, including easel and palette shelf, the tripod, collapsible water pail and bag to carry it all in, weigh in at 10 lbs or less.
