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 Bristol Water Colour Sketching Easel?

Lightweight and portable, the Bristol Water Colour Sketching Easel has been designed for quick and easy assembly, and features one touch telescopic tripod legs. Suitable for use with all media, including acrylic colour and oil paint, the ability to adjust its position from vertical to flat makes this easel a good choice for working with water colour and gouache.

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.

Who are Winsor & Newton?

In 1832, William Winsor and Henry Newton introduced the first moist water colours to the world. Today, Winsor and Newton remain the premier choice for artists, offering a wide variety of fine art supplies including: oil, water colour, acrylic and alkyd paints, pastels, artists' brushes, canvases, papers and portfolios.

The easel is fairly light and great that it comes in a case of its own. I found the instructions for assembling it initially somewhat obscure, but got there in the end. Even with practice, it will not be a quick pop-up job but is reasonably do-able. Worth the discount price I paid, but I doubt that I'd be happy if I'd paid RRP for this.

Brilliant design for a watercolourist. The best there is. My first one handled rough plein air conditions for four years.I hope this one will give me another four years of painting fun.Alternative easel designs are too heavy or flimsy or just do not suit watercolour painting.I wish there had been a more economical postage rate available.Cheers, Ross Andrews, Australia
