Re: Pochade easels: Strada vs Edge Pro
Which size? And more importantly how are you thinking of using it? There's a difference if you plan to backpack with it...versus keeping an easel or box in the trunk of your car and only walking a short distance.
I've reached the point where I want something very light and compact if I'm walking or travelling, especially in the city.
But if I'm near the SUV, I don't mind packing with several elephants. It's not so much the easel, or even the canvas(es), ....the real logistics challenge is working backwards from the amount of paints, medium, beverages and the "stuff". And at 60, I like to have my chair. LOL
I do think that the trend is leaning towards the photo-tripod modular easels and away from the French easels and the one-piece contraptions. There are so many nice carry bags, photographers' and student bags now to carry the supplies and paints. All sorts of lightweight tripods and canvas-holders.
