I haven't used one, but an instructor I had for a recent workshop had a Sienna, and I know he does a lot of plein air work in Yellowstone. The tripod set up seemed very cool.

Every French easel I've ever seen (or used) has been so ridiculously heavy that it ends up collecting dust and cobwebs. The coolest think I've seen has been an adapted camera tripod (very light) with attachments. All are carried in a backpack so transport is easy.
The artist who used this got pieces from Judson's Art Outfitters and built something to fit her needs. But Judson's also offer Pochade boxes. I think some come with carrying cases (like a laptop case).

Hi All:
Someone wrote to me and I thought others might have an opinion.

Linda, 
I am looking for an easel for outdoor painting.  Would love to know what you use?  And what do you think about this one?

OR does anyone have a french easel for sale, perhaps?
OR what do others use?



Thanks,
Linda
