Easels

Easels for drawing for many, are an essential part of the painting process.

An easel is an upright support used for displaying and/or fixing something resting upon it, at an angle of about 20° to the vertical. In particular, easels are traditionally used by painters to support a painting while they work on it, normally standing up, and are also sometimes used to display finished paintings.

For many, easels are an essential part of the painting process. They allow you to face your canvas straight on, whether you're working on your largest masterpiece or a small sketch.

The environment in which you wish to paint will affect your choice of easel. If you are painting outdoors you will need something compact and portable. If you have a large studio then you may have more space for a sturdier easel. In a spare room you may need to move or store your easel when not in use.

Whether you’re working in a studio space, spare room or the kitchen, a reliable easel can be a valuable piece of studio equipment. A good easel can help your posture and offers you a dedicated painting space.

Easels offer different benefits to different artists. Some artists that use easels find that their painting process is much freer. The distance between you and the easel allows for more freedom of movement.

You will need something lightweight or even collapsible. Painting in a communal area may mean that you are only able to work from an table mountable easel.

Types of Easels

Artists easels are available in all kinds of shapes and sizes – so there’s sure to be an easel out there that is perfect for you. You can broadly separate them into two sections – for use indoors or outdoors. Portable Easels and Sketching Field Easels are easy to set up and are ideal for outdoor work. Box Easels are similar to portable easels, but also include a storage compartment for your materials. Table Easels are small and perfect for use on a table top – great if you only have a small space to work in. A-Frame and H-Frame easels are much more sturdy, and designed for keeping in one studio space. Find out more about the benefits of each of these easel types below.

Outdoor & Portable Easels

Portable Easels are compact and lightweight – they are easy to transport and carry if you are working outdoors. Some models even come with their own bag. We sort them into three different types – Sketching Field Easels, Box Easels, and the Pochade Box.

Sketching Field Easels

Sketching Field Easels look similar to a camera tripod. They have three legs with a triangular footprint. At the point where the three legs meet there will be a central column on which artwork can be rested. This column has a lower and upper canvas support to position your work.
