Jullian Escort French Easel & Half Box French Easel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic easel I have waited a long time to purchase an easel and I couldn’t be happier with this product. I can use it standing or sitting. I can use it upright or flat. I do both acrylics and watercolors and use this easel for both. I think the storage drawer and the portability of the product are additional great features. Very well designed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t wait to use this. Looks like exactly what I need to get started plein air painting. Mine came in with one leg cracked, but I glued it. Hopefully it will hold up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than my last one! I recently replaced a French easel with the Julian Escort and I am happy with it but for a few exceptions. First, I like the metal lining to the box and in general, the easel seems made better than my last one. However, the screw and nut that fastens the leg to the box doesn’t quite fit properly but it was too much trouble to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Half Box Easel - unless bears This got here on time and undamaged. It's a good little half box Jullian Escort. It's about my half box easel. I am a painter and a painting and drawing teacher, and use this mostly outside in the landscape. It's lighter than my last half box easel, the hardware is decent, and the drawer is roomy enough (I don't use all the metal pieces) and slides out easily. The palette is light and folds to fit in the drawer. I glue a 1/4 to 1/2 inch rectangle of wood at each of the two corners on one side of the palette leftover paint doesn't get squished. This approximates the old Jullian palette that already had a couple of bumps there for that purpose. The hinge that holds the top to the box is an "L" shape, which holds up better than the straight metal pieces used in other French easels. I like the "buckles" used to close the lid better than the hooks used in other easels. The hooks always fell back and the box would open at inconvenient times. (Like when you are trudging across a tundra or something and there's a bear or a buffalo after you. No, that didn't really happen. At least not to me. But, it could have.) The buckles eliminate that problem. (Except for the bear and the buffalo. You're on your own there.) This one, like others that are not tip top of the line has a couple of issues; 1.Sometimes you have to fight with the easel to close it properly. It takes a few tries to get it lined up so it closes and the buckles snap shut. 2.The nuts used on the leg extensions don;t have "wings" on them. They are just round nuts, and they come loose, and the legs collapse-along with the easel. I will find some old wingnuts and use them. There are enough spare parts lying around the studio here. 3.The bag it comes with isn't particularly sturdy, and it's cumbersome. An easier solution, IMHO, would be to put a couple of rings down at the bottom of the box. Include two straps, rather than one, and they could be attached directly to the easel so the easel itself would be a kind of backpack. All in all, it's a pretty good buy for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice easel for the money. I have had this only a short time and weather has not been conducive to plein aire painting. I am using it in my studio and like it just fine. Have not experienced any of the issues with it that some others have. If you are looking for a fine piece of furniture, this may not be for you. The oiled finish is absorbed by the birch wood in different ways according to the grain and not consistent. Mine has dark wood on one leg and light wood on the other two. But, hey, it's a tool for painting, not for beauty. Slap some acrylic or oils on it. Spill some thinner on it and get to work. The more you punish it for art's sake the better it will look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very portable This easel is great! It feels sturdy and all of the nuts and bolts function without any issues of sticking or legs becoming loose. I am 5'3" and the height adjustment of where the canvas goes and the tilting action is just perfect. In fact, if I wanted to I could stand on a stood for larger canvases or drop the legs a bit and stand or sit on a chair with no issues. Overall I am happy with the purchase and I highly recommend it for trips with short walking distances(can get a bit awkward to carry if it being a box shape and not a contoured shape like a backpack).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Easel, Well Made and metal lined drawer is great! Set up was very easy and to travel it is very compact and solid Overall...its a great product that does as advertised. I also bought the attachable "backpack" straps that make it easier for me to transport. Stores easily in small closet.The easel came fully assembled. It can be used as a table top easel or with a chair/stool when the legs are folded up, or while standing when the legs are extended. All hardware is good quality brass and the hardwood box was oiled while the included mahogany palette was varnished. They do an amazing job in with the website and all the images, pictures and details make you want to buy everything!

What is the best air plenum easel that is very lightweight??

Asked by: Mac1
Artists argue about which easel style is best for plein air painting. The Jullian half box easel on this page weights eleven pounds empty. You can view the weight for each easel by clicking on the yellow circle icon for that easel. Some artists would argue that once you add supplies to a french easel it starts to get very heavy and that an aluminum easel is better in the long run. You can view the Soho lightweight Urban Artist easel here https://www.jerrysartarama.com/plein-air-aluminum-lightweight-easel-black-soho Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

When used as a table easel, can the bottom clamp that you put the painting on, slide down below the table top?

Asked by: Sunnymountaind
No, I am sorry this particular french easel cannot do that. The Renoir table easel does have that specific feature that you mentioned. You can view the Renoir Table easel here https://www.jerrysartarama.com/renoir-table-easel Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
