Why use an Easel?
Many artists prefer to use an easel because it enables them to work more freely, and to step back and view artwork from a distance. Working in a vertical position reduces the possibility of perspective being skewed, prevents dust gathering on slow-drying media, and the build up of loose pastel, chalk or charcoal sitting on the support.
Why choose Winsor & Newton Severn Easel?
Compact and portable, yet more robust than traditional beechwood sketching easels, the Severn Easel features a tilting facility, allowing the artist to adjust their working angle. Suitable for use with all media, including acrylic colour and oil paint, the ability to adjust its position from vertical to flat makes the Severn Easel a good choice for working with water colour and gouache. A carrying handle secured to the easel’s frame ensures optimal portability.
What are the dimensions of Winsor & Newton Severn Easel?
Extending to a maximum height of 200cm, with a width of 86cm, the Severn Easel can accommodate a canvas or board up to 110cm in height. Weighing 2.5kg, this easel measures 93 x 22 x 10cm, when folded.

What types of Easel are available?
We stock a variety of easels to ensure the artist’s every requirement is met.
Field or Portable Easels are designed to be taken outdoors, and are the perfect choice for travelling artists or those wanting to plein air paint. This type of easel is also preferable for artists who prefer a level of mobility around their studio. Folding to a lightweight, compact size, portable easels require little storage space.
Available in H-Frame, A-Frame and Single Mast designs, Studio Easels are ideal for the artist who has a dedicated studio space, where an easel can remain standing indefinitely.
H-Frame easels have a strong base that makes them sturdier than A-Frame easels, and better able to handle large canvases.
A-Frame or Lyre easels have two legs at the front and one at the rear, which pushes forward allowing the easel to be flattened and easily stored.
Single Mast easels are simple and affordable, a great choice for beginning artists, art students, or anyone with limited storage space.
Portable and easy to store, Table Easels are small enough to place on a table top, and perfect for artists who prefer to sit while working, or whose work is on a more modest scale.
