Other Features

Includes most necessary supplies (except brushes, paints and solvent) for travel or for small sketches. The kit has been designed with minimal weight in mind by reducing unnecessary weight in order to achieve the lightest setup. Hence the easel is smaller, the tripod is lighter, and the apron is thinner.

 

 

 

Lightest weight setup after ProChade, for artist where weight is the highest priority. The palette is larger than the ProChade box, and the tripod has a stronger construction for windy day. The Lite model can be put inside our Carry-On bag for traveling.

An easel with medium size palette. It can also carry larger wet panels up to 14" in width.

The ideal easel with largest palette size and most flexible wet panel carrying capacity, also good for watercolor or pastel with optional grid separator.
