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.

Prolific Painter – Day Tripper or Roadster Easel – I love the super light and portable design, good for painting oil and or watercolour. (Wet box is separate). I like this easel as its panel holder will hold the larger size canvas firmly, up to 36″ depending on which items you order.
New Wave Fine Arts Products – U Go Easel (Available at Seniors Art Supplies in Melbourne). I have this one and dedicate it for when I am using watercolour paints. It fits beautifully in a back pack as well.
