On this picture you can see my main easel (I have 4). It's a big, sturdy, heavy, stable easel that holds canvas up to 3 meters high. At left, my table with my (clean) pallete, a selection of my brushes, paper towel, paints; laying on the back of my easel are some canvases and panels; at right another (smaller) easel I use for sketches and smaller paintings.
This is a close up of my table, and you can see a couple of books I'm using for reference, my Palmtop (where would I be without it!), and the cable tv control (where would I be without it!!).
