    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering weather any of you has a good suggestion for how to not strain your neck while drawing/painting with watercolor? I find that it can be a problem to have my paper tilted at a 45 degree angle because the wet paint/water will run down over the page :/ If I lay it flat on the table my neck starts to hurt after some time… Hopefully you know a solution 😉

    There are adjustable drawing boards which can be used with watercolour. I like the one I am using, but it only has a few options available. Anna Mason who teaches watercolour has the Daler Rowney ArtSphere easel which I think looks great to work with. It is not as big and it seems like it can be adjusted to any desired angle.

    You’re welcome. I would love one of those easels as well. 🙂
