I found James Coulter’s system accidentally while assessing Fine Art Studio Online. It is something different for plein air painters. It looks awesome. The Art Box offers a large and stable 12 x 16 pallet. Because the pallet is attached to the tripod instead of the tripod mount, it is not going to wobble as much as some large pochades.
On the site there are some videos that demonstrate the system and a list of notable artist who use the system.
- A great looking system
- Easy to set up and use
- Innovative Design
- Reasonably Priced
The Coulter plain air system has a simple sturdy lightweight panel holder made from oak. It looks nice. The craftsmanship in the panel holder is excellent. It mounts to a standard tripod mount.

Quotes for the site:
The system weighs under 4 lbs. and the tripod is 3 lbs.for a total of around 7 lbs. Another big difference is that our system sets up in less than a minute!
Many of the parts are made from solid oak which makes it very durable for field work and packing it for travel. There are no complicated moving parts to break and if you accidentally lose a part it may be found in most hardware stores.
The Extra Long panel holder can accommodate small or large panels up to twenty inches. (If you want the Xtra Long Panel Holder with your System you must let me know when you order…just send a note when you pay with PayPal or send me an Email)
