A Guide to Pochade Boxes and Plein Air Easels

I wrote this guide to help my students who were considering buying a pochade box or a plein air easel. Pochade boxes and plein air easels are quite expensive, particularly when you add up all the accessories you need. Over the years I have probably bought about 20 easels most of which I donít use now and that are just taking up space in my studio.

So I wrote this guide to help you ask the right questions, and avoid making the same mistakes I did. Hopefully my advice on buying pochade boxes will save you a lot of money!

I wrote some comparison charts on a pochade box and easel that would support at least a 11◊14 size panel and palette. Where the manufacturer did not provide this size, I used the nearest size. See my website for more information.

Re: A Guide to Pochade Boxes and Plein Air Easels

Barry - Thank you so much for posting your guide. Iíve got two of the plein air systems described in your guide: a Mabef half-size French easel, and a small Guerilla Box that holds 6x8 panels. I have also found the RayMar panel holder cases to be invaluable.
