The STRADA Mark II Easel Set features the same simplicity, durability and precision construction as the original STRADA Easel design.  It includes the Mark II Palette and the Mark II Mast with Adjustable sliders.

The Mark II is perfect for a studio or plein air artist working in any medium. When attached to a tripod, the mast can be mounted at the bottom for smaller works or at the center for maximum stability when creating larger works. The Mark II allows the artist to place the canvas, watercolor, or drawing paper at eye level and at any angle.  

The STRADA Mark II Palette measures 9 7/8"x 14 7/16"x 1" (25 cm x 36 cm x 2.5 cm), weighs 2 lbs 12 oz, and is easy to fold up and store in a backpack.   The STRADA Mark II Palette has two adjustable arms that attach to any tripod legs (up to 1 1/4") and generous side panels that double as brush holders and palette covers. You can use the floor of the Mark II Palette as your painting palette.  Neutral Gray Bamboo or HDPE Plexiglass palette inserts are also available. 

The STRADA Mark II Mast measures 34" in length (86.5 cm), weighs 1 lb 9 oz and can hold a canvas panel of any size up to a 30" high or wide depending on the orientation of the Mast. The STRADA Mark II can accommodate any width panel.  The Mast sliders are adjustable for painting on panels and canvas up to 2" thick.  The STRADA Mark II Mast can be disassembled into two 17" parts for compact, easy storage.  Half of the mast can also be used to paint works up to 13" tall. The Mast can also be paired with the STRADA Tripod Tray

The STRADA Mark II is made from high-quality aluminum and coated with a durable* neutral gray finish.
