For many artists, there's nothing better than setting up an art easel alongside a beautiful scene and capturing the moment on canvas. An easel can securely hold your work in place so you are free to do other things. Your hands can already be quite busy as you work with your palette, paints, and brushes.
Easels come in different shapes and sizes. A tripod easel may not take up much room and is easier to fold and take along with you. A studio easel is usually somewhat larger, and you can have one set up in your art room and ready to work on bigger projects.
Some easels have a drawer or special compartment in which to store or carry your art supplies. They can often be adjusted and tilted at an incline, making it easier to draw or paint.
Pigment Lab has a wide assortment of quality easels to choose from, made from beech wood and other fine materials. Set one up in your work area and keep a smaller one on hand for when you travel.
