Plein Air Easels

"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. Whether you are exploring the back country of America, or the back roads of Europe, the "En Plein Air Pro" is the portable studio that can meet the needs of the most adventurous painter."
