E is for Easel

I have never worked on an easel.   The mediums I generally work in don’t require such an instrument.   Recently I went with a friend to a Sip and Paint night and used an easel for the first time.   Sip and Paint is just a fun night where you paint for fun.  The facilitator/instructor is providing some key guidance on the painting you are working on.  But to be totally honest it doesn’t provide much if any instruction.   Using acrylic paint, you paint a painting from beginning to end in a couple of hours.   The whole time you are chatting with your friends and have a little bit of wine along the way.  It is a social night.   It is a moment you let your inhibitions go and paint.   Ourt Paint 'n Sip in progress.
