Oil Painting Easels

When I first got started painting, I didn’t know which easel I wanted and there are many to choose from. So. I’m going to provide you four questions to ask yourself.  Your answers will guide you to pick the right one for you!

  1. Do you plan to sit or stand?
  2. How much space do you have?
  3. Do you plan to paint inside or outside?
  4. How much are you willing to spend?

4 Key Questions to Ask BEFORE you purchase an easel.

Below is a handy-dandy infographic I created that provides helpful information about what easels I recommend and why.  You pick what is best for you!  Included in the handy-dandy graphic is a link to my affiliate Blick Art Materials where I actually purchased these easels.
