Meet the baby!
Oh my. New baby member of my easel family arrived today! How exciting! I bought it because I wanted the capacity to work larger when painting outdoors. Much as I love my pochade box I can only paint up to 30cms square with it and it's not too good with canvasses. I didn't realise quite how large and heavy this Jullian box easel would be, but it does what I want it to do. It's great for large canvasses, I just won't be able to carry it far!
I now need to decide whether to take it to Brehat next week for a road test or take my familiar friend, Mabel. A new easel takes so much getting used to...
