Reader Submissions: What's On Your Painting Easel?


What's on your painting easel right now? Take a photo and share it with us without tidying up first, which is what people tend to do before submitting photos for the artist's studios photo gallery. Let's see what your easel and painting space looks like while you're busy working, as you're in the middle of something. Feel free to submit photos regularly, as you move onto new paintings and artworks.
