    Plein Air Easel


    $409.00
    Quantity

    The Kearns Model of the Take It Easel comes with the following enhancements to the Traditional Model: Rifle Sling, Snow Shoes, Tobin Hole. Stapleton Kearns, an avid plain air painting enthusiast who paints primarily in New England, made some of these modifications to his decades-old Take It Easel to further increase its versatility for plein air painting!

    • Rifle Sling

      A special accessory designed to make it easy and comfortable to carry your plein air easel

      Wider than the standard cotton shoulder strap, this black padded Rifle Sling adds increased comfort while carrying your plein air easel with the strap hung over your shoulder. The Rifle Sling is included with the Kearns Model of the Take It Easel.

    • Snow Shoes

      Special plein air easel accessory for painting in the snow

      These snow shoes come in sets of three, each is 4" x 4" x 1/2", made from the same maple as your Take It Easel. They come in handy when plein air painting on soft ground such as snow, sand, or mud, as they keep your Take It Easel from sinking or shifting during your painting session. Three Snow Shoes are included with the Kearns Model of the Take It Easel.

    • Tobin Hole

      A special accessory designed to allow for plein air painting with larger canvases or surfaces

      The Tobin Hole, Invented by Eric Tobin, a well know Vermont Landscape artist, is a third hole at the top of your Take It Easel where your hooked rod goes, in order to secure the top of your artwork. It allows for taller canvases and a greater diversity of canvas angles while painting en plein air. The Tobin Hole is included with the Kearns Model of the Take It Easel. **This item is only available when you purchase your easel, and is not sold separately.
