List of easels/ palettes for traveling
We are off to Greece soon and since I am only taking a carry-on I am opting for a very small and lightweight painting setup.
These easels must be attached to your own tripod. Click on name to view them.
Open Box M. (My 12”. x 16” is too large for a carryon- go smaller if this is your choice).
Tripod only 16.5 inches suitable for carry-on suitcase and small easel set up only. You will need to be weighted down on the back leg to insure it doesn’t tip over while painting. You can see it on the photo of the Guerilla Box photo from above. Click here.
I’ve also attempted to make my own versions. Here are two photos of glueing a quick release to a piece of masonite and a Jack Richeson table top easel (with table top part removed) . I will report back on how well they worked for me. I will be ordering the Ledereasel palette try. I have something similar that I had made out of plywood however, it it slightly too large for my carryon. The pastel box does clip nicely on it as well as the disposable palette paper. I drilled different size paintbrush holder holes in mine. See bottom two images.
