Richeson French Easel Companion And French Mistress is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Artist's Companion! Very useful product. Its lightweight and compact in size and have helped reduce the amount of weight I have to carry when going Plein Air Painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality This fits nicely on the drawer of my French easel and gives me much needed usable space for my palette and solvent and brushes. It has a large watercolor palette that comes with it and i can remove that and it fits my palette paper perfectly for oils. I like the quality of the wood and the way it folds into an easily carried case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient Saver I use this to keep my palette safe from dust and drying out in my small house studio. Find it's size perfect and the grey toned disposable palette great to mix on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have for French Easel owners! I saw this on a landscape painting video and I had to have one. I bought the smaller one and it is a perfect fit for my full sized French Easel. I use oils and I replaced the included plastic pallette with a sheet of glass painted neutral grey on the back like the artist on the video did. Every artist that sees me out painting wants to know where they can get one. Try it, you'll wonder how you ever got along without one!

Does the pallet area of either the French Companion fit my 12 by 16 disposable palette? Will it also fit my Masterson palette keeper that I keep my 12 by 16 disposable palette in?

Asked by: Jill999999999999
Thank you for contacting us. Your 12x16" disposable palette will easily fit in the middle compartment of the French Easel Companion item number 53195 which measures 13 "X16-1/2". The height of the folded French Companion is 2-3/8" high, so depending on the hight of your Masterson palette keeper the French companion might be able to close over it. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Can somebody explain more in depth the differences between the “companion” and the “French mistress”? I can see from the pictures it’s a stand and some kind of storage box  for paint, etc, but can you purchase one without the other?

Asked by: FlounderFace
Thank you for contacting us. Both the Richeson French Easel Companion And French Mistress are palette extension storage boxes that can be set up on your existing french easel or any other table. Stands are not included with the Richeson French Easel Companion or the French Mistress. You would need to use your existing French Easel to create the stand for this palate storage box. You can purchase the size that best fits your needs.
