Easels for Artists
Artists will have a variety of different easels to choose from. They can purchase a table top easel, which can be moved from table to table. A portable, plein air easel is entirely portable and can be moved from location to location. These stand up on their own. If you're going to purchase this type of stand-alone easel, you'll need to make sure that you get a good sturdy one!
Finally, there are floor easels, which are much larger than the ones mentioned above. These are typically best suited for professional artists. Depending on your painting preferences, you'll want to choose an easel accordingly. Remember that each easel will have a maximum size of canvas that will work for it. If you want to be able to paint 24x30 paintings or something similar, make sure that your easel is compatible!
Finally, it is essential to remember that easels can also be very decorative. They can be used to hold plates, pictures and other decorative items. They come in a wide variety of different sizes and colors, which ensures that you'll be able to find one that suits your preferences and interior design ideas.
Where to Buy an Easel
Truthfully, there are many different places to purchase easels. Hobby shops are always a good choice! Shopping on Amazon, which is where I purchase my artist easels, is another good idea. I am sure eBay would also be a good source for easels.
