I just finished this one. Trying out my new Heilman Double Sketchbox and easel.
A little pricey, but well worth it I think. I love the small box for my plein air excursions.
I have a large Heilman pastel box as well, but it is so cumbersome for me to cart around the countryside or overseas.
Hence I bit the bullet and purchased this small one. I think it does the trick perfectly.This box opens to around 9.25" x 14.5" wide, enabling me to fill it with pastels on both sides, plenty for traveling. The closed box is only 7.25" x 9.25" .
I also purchased the 18" easel (I had the 24" easel with my larger box) .
These easels slot neatly into the ready made holes Heilman have made for it. Works so well!
FYI..This whole outfit cost $180 for the box and $50 for the easel..
The painting above is 4.5" x 12" unframed
$125 plus S/H
