    What is your favorite style of easel?

    My dad built me a great, simple tripod easel that I have used for years, but I have always wanted to try one of those French easels with the built-in paint box. Has anyone tried one, and would you recommend it?

    I don't own one of them as I have a couple of wooden easels and an Aluminium easel which is by far the best buy as it's a lot lighter than the wooden ones, although those french ones do have a bit more storage.....

    I agree that the aluminum ones are a lot lighter and easier to move around. Honestly, I just put nails/pushpins into my wall with a piece of raw canvas behind to protect the paint and hang my pieces since they tend to be bigger; bigger canvases=tipping off of easels, which is never fun. I use a plastic storage container for paint, and then put a glass palette on top. It works well for me, and it's a lot cheaper than investing in a wooden easel. You'll find what works best for you. Good luck!
