In this blog post I have had the honour of interviewing Ben Haggett who makes pochade box easels through his company Alla Prima Pochade. Ben Haggett is a woodworker and plein air painter and he operates from his home in Missoula in Montana, USA. As a plein air painter myself I personally have been using one of Ben’s pochade boxes for the last few years.
I have always loved landscape art and even as a child when I used to draw and paint all the time, it has always been my favourite subject to paint.

In this blog post I have compiled a list and examples of ten of my favourite historical painters which really inspire me and have influenced my own art works. I hope these historical painters give you lots of inspiration you too.
