After childcare issues made it so that my husband and I could not take a romantic trip to Napa to celebrate our 19th anniversary, my wonderful husband agreed to get me something I've been coveting for a while now -- the portable watercolor easel that some of my favorite artists/teachers use, the En Plein Air Pro Traveler Watercolor Easel.
I went out two days ago to the Lafayette Reservoir with my daughter and her friend to try it out.
I love the easy to attach easel that can be set at almost any angle including completely flat! It has a pull out brush holder and can be used as a table top easel! I also really like the shelf that holds my palette and the collapsible cup that came with it.
After recently trying to sketch a landscape on the Richmond Shoreline by balancing my sketchbook on my lap and juggling my brushes in the cup holder of my travel chair - I realized I NEEDED this! And, I was right! :)
Do you have/use a travel easel when you paint outside? If so, which one?
