A high-quality easel is an essential piece of equipment for any painter. Working on an art easel keeps your work upright and allows you to easily display your work once its finished. You can easily step back to view your work and maintain proper perspective. Whether you paint “en plein air”  which refers to painting outdoors or in the comfort of your home or studio, a portable easel is effective and convenient. Check out our collection, and choose the easel that’s right for you.


What is the best easel for painting? Tripod easels and desktop easels are ideal for painting: They’re designed to hold your art securely while you work. Display easels are typically only used for displaying a finished painting: If you want to paint with them, you’ll have to be extra careful not to let your canvas move around. The best easel for your needs will be one that can accommodate both your painting size and the space you work in.


What can I use if I don't have an easel? Without an easel, you could certainly get creative and paint on the floor or prop your work up on the wall or on a chair. Although, you’re likely to get frustrated by the uncomfortable body positioning and your painting falling down while you work. With our selection of portable easels, it should be easy to find one that works for you.


Can you paint without an easel? It’s a struggle to paint when you constantly have to worry about maneuvering your body, your painting surface and your supplies around. Not only does an easel keep your canvas in the right place, but it also lets you see what you’re doing from the proper angle — save yourself the horror of finishing a work only to discover your perspective is way off! Buy a painting easel so you can keep your life easy and focus on your creativity.
