Can you paint without an easel?
Some artists prefer painting flat instead of using an easel. You can simply rest your painting on the surface of a table, your lap, or any other flat surface as you paint. You can prop the top edge (the edge furthest away from you) upon a wooden board or another object to help you achieve better perspective.
What goes on an easel?
An easel is an upright support used for displaying and/or fixing something resting upon it, at an angle of about 20° to the vertical. In particular, easels are traditionally used by painters to support a painting while they work on it, normally standing up, and are also sometimes used to display finished paintings.
Why is an easel called an easel?
Did you know there’s a donkey behind “easel”? This word for a frame supporting an artist’s canvas comes from the Dutch word “ezel,” meaning an ass or donkey. The Dutch called the easel a “donkey” because it, like a beast of burden, lugged the artist’s canvas from one spot to another.
