Over the last couple of years, Chris has worked to develop a new easel, designed to be sturdy yet moveable, capable of holding paintings of any size, with fingertip control operating on a counter balance system. Set-up and vertical movement of the canvas is easy and quick .
It also fits easily into corners or can be folded flat and stored against a wall or under a bed for those who don't have a dedicated art space.
The easel is made from welded square section metal and aluminium and rides on lockable wheels. It is solid and sturdy like its maker and is powder-coated a bright, bright red colour. The powder-coating means that the easel is easy to clean and there is less likelihood of the paintwork scratching and chipping.
What more could you want?
Well, Chris is currently working on a detachable tray under the canvas for holding your pastels, paints and brushes. It's still in prototype stage but will be ready soon. He is also planning detachable lights, a rack for paper towel and a side table. Watch this space for updates.
It is currently being trialled in one retail outlet on the Sunshine Coast and more will be coming on board. Chris has had an introductory offer going at less than wholesale price for the first ten. There are currently three introductory easels left. ( 11 March 2016)
