Shipment of supplies just arrived, a day late of course. So we begin.
Everyone has their own methods and these are mine. There is no one way.
I have a very large easel in a very small studio but I can work on canvases up to 4 by 6 feet. The small gazebo is eight sided with each side having a window. There is lots of light; sometimes too much.
I built the easel several years ago and it has functioned well. Because I work on small panels I have added adjustable cross members with clips. This facilitates snapping out one painting and setting it aside while I work on another.
I use pre-primed panels up to 16 X 20 and reserve canvas only for larger work.
