The EdgePro paintbook is light enough to carry around, fits in a regular backpack that handles a laptop and it easy to setup in location. This summer I traveled through Italy painting with convenience because of this easel design, weight and size. The glass palette is the same size as the palette I use in my studio and the use of magnets to hold the canvas and tray tables make this easel even more convenient traveling and in setting up to paint. Space for paint is not a problem unless one uses a lot of different colors. I use a limited palette painting whether I’m outside or in my studio.
