The sun is shining, the birds are singing & the temperatures are rising. It’s time to open your windows and get some fresh air. Better yet, it’s time to take your work outside and get some “plein air”!
WHAT IS PLEIN AIR PAINTING?
Plein air painting is simply the act of painting outdoors - historically 19th century, French impressionistic landscapes - but why stop there?! The invention of portable easels, such as our Pochade Boxes & Accessories make it easy for any genre painter to work outside.
U.GO ANYWHERE POCHADE BOX
The u.go Anywhere Pochade Box - available in three sizes - was designed for travel. Not only are they compact, but they stay closed due to the use of rare earth magnets (how cool is that?!). Those same magnets help hold the removable side wall and accessory side tray attachment (not included) in place. Each box comes with a high-density plastic palette, are super light-weight, easy to set up and provide ample storage for all of your tools.
