Leslie, sorry ...I forgot to address the picture question.

I pretty much stick them anywhere if I need too. Honestly I pretty much just use a monitor now, it is much more productive for me to zoom in and out, plus I can hold my brush up and size.

The bad thing about this practice is I keep looking for the "zoom" button on my canvas so I can blow up the detail to work on there too!

There's that wall color again!

Beth,

That's not your studio is it (in your easel pictures below)? Is it Michael Georges'? It's funny how many of us Forum dwellers now have exactly the same formula:

Leffel/Sherrie McGraw/Whitaker/Georges/Herrick/?who else?/ Olive Green

on our studio walls. It's kind of dark, but everything sure looks great next to it!

Just wondering,

Garth

Beautiful easel Beth!

Santa was nice to me this year also. My hands have gotten very shaky so I got a remote cord for my camera and 13x19 paper for our new i9900 Canon printer. So far I'm pleased, it takes all the guess work out of printing, and now that I can take photos that aren't blurry I'm much happier.

I managed to paint a portrait commision, and do a landscape before Christmas. The landscape was from a photo my son took while on vacation in Montana. He won a trip to a ranch along with all the necessary equipment for a winter trip. While on the top of a mountain he shot a picture that he loves, so I suprised him with a painting of it.

Jean

Back to the easel in two hyperlink clicks.

If one clicks on the Olive Green wall paint link in my past post above, one will find Michael Geoges's Benjamin Moore paint formula for this versatile color, and to make things go full circle, he provides another hyperlink showing his new Bingham Barclay Easel against this wall color. Full circle... easel.....paint....more about that easel!

Thanks for re linking those subjects Garth.

Yes, Leffel green, I am not sure if Leffel or Bill Whitaker were responsible for the Scottsdale Artist School using it on the walls in one of their larger studios. I know it's the only one Bill likes to teach in.

I think the Easel shots are from Bill's studio. Scott sent them to me, it might be Michael's. Scott is studying Architecture, I don't think he is a painter so I doubt it's his place.

Since my studio sticks out in our house, I do not have the color on the walls, but when needed I have drapes that are this color.

BTW, did you see where Bill told Michael he better not get paint on his easel? Yikes, now I have to figure out how to clean it!
