Best Easels for Painting

How do I know what kind of easel to buy?

This blog recommends an easel for your studio and one for when you are on-the-go. It’s hard to know which easel to get when there are so many to choose from in an art store. I hope these recommendations help.  

Choosing the Right Easel 

  1. Large studio easels are good for a permanent painting station, but they are not portable.

2. Pochade boxes, French easels and other travel easels are not usually stable enough for larger works.

3. When choosing your first easel, consider its primary use, whether for travel or for permanent studio use.

I recommend the following brands.
