I've recently started working on small panels, as a break from the large, multi-layered paintings currently on my easel. The dogs are a special side project for me.
I wanted to share this great easel that I found. It's a panel holder really, that sits on your easel, and makes working on 6x6 and other small panels so much more convenient.
This lovely gadget was designed expressly for these small panels. Many artists use for their 'daily painting' practice. Check out Carol Marine's work for examples. She also has a great blog.
