I remember it took me many months of surfing the net and talking to artists to find the equipment I need. I’ve ralked to some fantastic artists and also watched countless videos about easels, pochade boxes and suppliers/stores and I think I’ve picked up some good tips along the way for where to find good resources. I’ve also made a comprehensive PDF list of some pochade box options, including their website URL’s which you can look up. If you are a do it yourself fan, then you might also find this link handy – see for under $10 e-book on learning how to make your homemade pochade box.
