In this Art Kick Sunday Video we look at some Urban Sketching Chairs and Stools. We test out a rucksack stool, a fold-up travel painting stool and a lightweight stool that folds up and fits in a bag.

Yellowstone Rucksack stool for sketching

The Yellowstone Rucksack stool is the most comfortable if you don’t have to far to walk. You can store your urban sketching materials such as sketchbooks and painting materials in the bag section and then convert the backpack to a stool when you have found your plein air painting or drawing location.

Hobbycraft red travel painting stool

The Hobbycraft red travel painting stool is very cheap and cheerful and would be ok for sitting for a short period of time. But because it only has three legs it is not great on uneven ground, for example, if you were urban sketching in a park.

Lesfit lightweight stool for Urban Sketching

The Lesfit lightweight stool that folds up into a small bag is incredibly light and compact. It’s a good all-round sketching seat, and is definitely my first choice to take urban sketching at the moment.

Camping Mat for Sketching Outside

You could also use a folding camping mat to sit on which are very cheap and light to carry around.
