For beginners and professionals alike, this video workshop offers detailed instructions that you can follow step by step as you build your own lightweight sketching easel. The Gurney Easel is compact and versatile, perfectly suited to sketchbooks and small panels. It is easy and inexpensive to make, the result of decades of tinkering and refinement.
Gurney lays out all the tools and materials you’ll need, and he shows alternate methods for those who don’t have many power tools. He shares behind-the-scenes coverage of how to fabricate not only the easel, but also four different sunlight diffusers, each of which is a big improvement over the traditional artists’ umbrella.
Running time: 64 minutes, HD widescreen video.
