With the drawing done I’m excited to get back to doing some painting after a month and a half away from it.
The size of this painting is providing some interesting challenges for me. At first I thought I was going to have to buy a new bigger easel, but I’ve spent enough money in my life on art supplies. I ended up using a stool and the ceiling and it worked great.
I was reminded of Rembrandt’s easel. Here we are buying all these fancy products that cost a ton of money and one of the best painters ever in our history used a few boards and some pegs.
So if I feel that I need an easel I’m going to find some old boards and make this thing. It looks like it will last 100 years and do everything I need. For now I will just use the stool I have.

Reuse, Recycle, Reduce Your (mindless spending on unnecessary art supplies). Couldn’t help myself. A new easel might be a nice gift for you though.
Honestly I like the idea of not conforming to the mass of artists out there buy expensive materials. I would like to build myself a Rembrandt easel.
