How to Choose an Art Easel in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Check the Maximum and Minimum Canvas Size 
  2. Check That You’ll Be Able to Work at a Comfortable Height

1. Check the Maximum Canvas Size Is Suitable for Your Artwork

1. Check the Maximum Canvas Size Is Suitable for Your Artwork

Whether you're working with watercolours, oils, acrylics, pencils, or charcoal, you'll need to make sure that your easel is able to hold the size of canvas that you intend to work with. For example, an easel with a maximum size of 30 cm would be perfect for small pieces and sketchbooks, whereas one over 100 cm is better suited to larger portraits or landscapes.


While all easels have a maximum size, not all list the minimum recommended size. Luckily, the majority will support a canvas of at least 30 cm. To hold your canvas or sketchbook securely in place, look for an easel with adjustable clamps. This will allow you to work freely without the worry of it slipping or falling. 


Let your creative juices flow with some of the best oil pastels in the UK!

2. Choose an Adjustable Easel to Work at a Comfortable Height

2. Choose an Adjustable Easel to Work at a Comfortable Height

Now that you know your canvas is going to fit, you'll want to make sure that you're going to be able to work at a comfortable height. Whether you prefer to sit or stand while creating your latest masterpiece, you'll be pleased to know that almost all tripod-style easels have an adjustable height.


Tabletop easels are better suited to smaller pieces, and can be used while sitting at a desk or dining room table. However, these aren't adjustable. If you plan on choosing a tabletop easel, we recommend also using an adjustable seat or stool to make sure you're always working at a comfortable height.


Remember, it's important to use a high quality brush set when working with watercolours and acrylics.
