Item details

Travel Painter is a comfortable way to travel with an easel box.
Thanks to the special strap design an artist is FREE FROM A BULKY TRIPOD!
While the size of the etude is still large enough to hang it on the wall: 20 x 20 cm.

Lighter than a french easel and larger than a pochade-box.
Spacious enough to take all your art supply inside a box.
And NO NEED TO TAKE A BACKPACK. Travel Painter is enough.

Of course, it doesn't pretend to replace a full-sized tripod easel. I just made it for another purpose.
To clarify for what purpose it serves the best, please imagine the following:

You are somewhere in the heart of Tusсany.
You just arrived and decided to go for a little walk to explore the area.
Enjoying the beautiful views you follow the path.
As an artist, everything before your eyes you see as a composition.
One after another.
Suddenly, you stop fascinated by one of them!
It's that feeling when you understand that only you can see it the way you are seeing it right now.
Everything is how you love right now: the light, the color, the composition.
You already see how you would solve this composition technically.
In what plastic manner you would perform every detail of the painting.
You guess which of your favorite tricks will work perfectly for this one, etc.
And the only question that matters at this moment is:

"Why is my easel box at home again?!" :(

As an artist, I faced this disappointment every travel I had, because I never took my tripod easel box with me.
It is just too heavy and bulky to carry it around with me wherever I want to rest and enjoy my vacation.
I searched the market but did not find anything that could satisfie all my needs.
That's why I decided to make by myself the PORTABLE EASEL BOX that would be perfect for a "non-plein-air plans" outing, that's especially necessary for travels.
After testing with my friends a few hand-made examples, all of us were so impressed that I decided to share it with you, and got more examples, this time craft-made and with a beautiful logo.

a mix of a tripod easel and a handy pochade box, that takes all the best from everyone.
The main feature is the special strap design that serves as a replacement for a tripod.
I tested this system on different types of body — it always works!
The second feature is its optimal form factor: it is comfy and spacious enough to place all necesarry art supply inside: two cartons, paints, brushes, thinner, rag, oilcan, and more. And no need to take a backpack. Travel Painter on your back is enough.

1. Larger size of canvas: 20 x 20 cm.
It is optimal size: not too little and large enough to hang your "brought from a travel" etude on a wall.
2. Hands do not get tired when working.
Unlike a handy pochade box, no need to hold the box with a hand.

1. Unlike tripod easels, it is easy to wear (on your back). So you can take it even for a little walk, without plein-air plans. Just in case.
2. Unlike tripod easels, it instantly assumes the working position. So you ready to work at any moment, without long preparations.
3. No tripod — no matter what's under your feet. That might be sand or snow, or uneven mountain slope.
4. With Travel Painter on your back, you can ride a bicycle, climb the mountain, you can even run! :)

1. Waterproof
All hinges and clasps are made out of high-quality stainless steel, and the box itself has been treated with a waterproof varnish to handle all weather conditions.
2. Customizable
The angle of working surface can be adjusted with two clamps. The dividers of painting equipment are removable. The cut cartons can be positioned either vertically or horizontally.
3. Left / Right-handed
Travel Painter is the universal solution for left- or right-handed people. The strap can be easily adjusted for a left-handed person. And the palette moves in both directions.
4. Rubber feet
Thanks to the rubber feet, you can easily and safely store Travel Painter vertically at home. So it doesn't take up much space. A little, but very useful detail.
5. 100% cotton strap.
The soft cotton strap ensures that Travel Painter is always nice to wear and doesn't rub your skin if you wear it for a long time.

Outside dimensions (without little elements of adjustment): 220x227x75 mm (8.6x 8.9x 2.9 inches)
Inside dimensions (without dividers): 200x205 mm (7.8x8 inches)
Depth: 30 mm (1.1 inch)

WEIGHT (with the strap):
850 gr.

STRAP MOUNT SIDE means that I will send the easel with the strap mount already set for a left-handed or right-handed user.

Free 14 days return policy:
After receiving the package, you have 14 days to return the item according to the return policy.
I hope you will enjoy it though :)

Average review
Great little light-weight pochade box for taking along when traveling. Well built and functional.

Compact, light, holds two boards and has a comfortable strap.

This is a great little box! Well made and crafted. It is very light but it still feels sturdy. I have been painting with it for a week now and I like it a lot. What I love about the box is that it so quick to set up and start painting. There is plenty of storage space. Under the palette I store two short handled brushes, a palette knife, seven paint tubes, a small jar of turp and bunch of folded paper towels. This is a great alternative to tripod mounted pochades and I highly recommend it if you plan to use it primarily for outdoors doing quick small studies.
