The Classic slimline models are a new design from our EASyL range of pochade boxes, ideal for those who wish to travel across states or overseas for painting. Unlike other EASyL pochade boxes that have a wet panel carrier on the back, the Classic has a slimline format which is less bulky and more easy-to-use. The large palette size comes in a compact box which is easy to pack in your luggage for traveling.

The Classic box consists of a spring-loaded panel holder to hold the working panel from the top, and a supporting means to support the panel from the bottom.

On the Classic-Mini and Classic-1, there are two or three pairs of hooks located in different height to support different panel sizes from the bottom. To mount a panel on the Classic-Min or Classic-1, simply turn one pair of the hooks outward, place the working panel onto the hooks, then pull the spring-loaded panel holder from the top until it holds the top of the working panel. The supporting hooks can also support stretched canvas.

On the Classic-2, the supporting plate from the bottom can be adjusted by sliding up or down to accommodate different panel sizes. To mount a panel on the Classic-2, simply adjust the panel support plate to the ideal level for the bottom of the working panel, place the working panel on the panel support plate, then pull the spring-loaded panel holder from the top until it holds the top of the working panel. It's that easy. The panel support plate can be replaced with a wider one (sold separately) to support stretched canvas.

The Classic can hold a panel size anywhere from 4" height up to the max height shown in the chart above. There is no horizontal width limitation.

The working panel can be tilted easily using the adjusting knobs on either side of the pivot between the lid and the bottom.

The Easy-L easel and accompanying accessories are everything they are claimed to be. Innovative design does away with wing-nuts, and sticking drawers, delayed set-up time, and pieces that break, freeze, or fall off. Durable materials of light, varnished wood and brass fittings take hard use. The pochade boxes are lightweight enough to transport, stow, and ship easily. The tripod design is wind-resistant, precision-locking, and adjusts to uneven terrain. Out of the four umbrellas I have purchased, only the Artwork Essentials umbrella works, due to its easy any-angle attachment to boxes and tables, and the structure of its perfectly-designed clamp. The Easy-L easel (I have purchased four, in various sizes) will be the one you will keep.
