The easel I am now using isn't much better and bound to go the same way. One side of the canvas rest will not screw together properly, so the canvas is held by only one screw and wonky. But I will persevere.
I find that this style of painting takes ages to get going unless you have a preconceived design - but that is difficult if the underpainting is improvised. However, once the images start to assert themselves, it's great fun!
