Welcome to dickblick
Best's Deluxe Lobo Easel is an easel to accommodate the watercolorist, pastel artist, and oil painter. It tilts forward to reduce glare and prevent dusting, and backward to form a table for gessoing, watercolors, and varnishing.
Its retractable mast extends upward to handle a 60" canvas, and folds down to a compact 52" height. The painting tray can be adjusted from vertical to horizontal in just seconds.
A hinged, oak veneer plywood shelf beneath the frame provides storage for books or supplies. Top and bottom painting trays have rubber grips to hold a canvas securely.
It's made of hand-rubbed, oil-finished, solid red oak.
Some assembly required.

Eazy to assemble
By SoCal Artist
from San Diego
Comments about Best Deluxe Lobo Easel:
This easel works very well for doing my watercolors and acrylics. I have a small studio and my space is limited so I don't have room for a easel, drawing board and my computer desk. The way this easel can lay flat (or nearly flat) for doing my watercolors and then rise up and be able to accommodate my large canvases lets me eliminate the drawing board.It was easy to assemble, despite the instructions. The instructions were vague and the illustrations and photos conflicting. I was still able to assemble the easel on my own in a few minutes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It's an OK Easel but just OK.
from Port St Lucie, FL
I wanted a versatile easel for smaller painting and drawings. This easel works OK but compared to my very large 25 year old studio easel it is a light weight. I get very physical with my work and this easel moves too much. I had to put two sand bags on the base to hold it down. Other than that it's OK

After researching on line and going to several art supply locations to compare similar products I bought the Lobo Easel for my artist wife. She and I are both very impressed with the quality and ease of use for painting. We also have a newly engaged Grandson who sells his work and intend to send him the same easel for his art.

I love my Best deluxe Lob easel!
from Leesburg, Va.
I was so excited when my Lobo easel came, because it came way earlier than they said it Would, and I was so happy to get to use it. It seemed very easy for my son-in-law to put it together. I didn't time him, but, l think it took him around twenty minutes or less to put it together. One of the things I absolutely love about Best deluxe Lobo easel is, it tilts my work to a flat position; this means I can us the easel to apply gesso to the canvase, or to lay my work flat, say when I'm using a sponge to paint and the acrylic Paint is really thin, it won't run down the painting because the paintingIs in a flat position. Before my deluxe Lob easel, I would get on the floorto apply my gesso and that was not comfortable at all. I will get another Lobo easel because many times I work on more than one painting at a time.
LOVE MY NEW DELUXE LOBO EASEL !
from Surprise, Arizona
I have been wanting to buy this easel but had other easels I could use. I was checking your prices and noticed the great sale. After looking at your video I was convinced that I just had to have it and ordered it. I ABSOLUTELY DIDN'T REALIZE WHAT I WAS MISSING PREVIOUSLY! My studio is in my garage but now it's in my breakfast room and looks wonderful. the wood is beautiful and it's so sturdy I don't have to worry about the large paintings that I have been doing. The price I paid makes me KNOW that I got something worth a lot more than I paid! Thank you, Blick. PS A VIDEO OF ME PUTTING IT TOGETHER WOULD HAVE CAUSED SOME LAUGHS :)

I have been looking for quality easel for a long time. Easy to put together, very stable, beautiful finish! I could not be happier. I just wish there was a Blick store closer than 50 miles.
Sturdy, Attractive, and Easy to Use
By Alison Draws!
from Scarborough, Maine
I am a relatively beginner level artist, and I love to draw with graphite, charcoal, and colored pencil. When I started drawing, I was just using my drawing board and sitting on the floor. This was a very uncomfortable position - especially for doing longer, more complicated drawings. I then tried to get away with buying an inexpensive aluminum field easel so that I could stand while drawing (much more comfortable). The field easel was OK, but not very sturdy for bearing down with the pencils or when erasing. It would wobble , and I would have to hold it with one hand while working. Then, I realized that I really needed to get a more sturdy easel. After extensive research, I decided to order the Best Deluxe Lobo Easel, and I am so glad I did! It was extremely easy to put together. The pieces are nicely finished with a warm stain. Everything fits together well, and it is extremely easy to adjust the height and the tilt. I use a large drawing board, and I'm pretty tall, but this easel can be adjusted so that I can comfortable work while standing. It is very sturdy, and it does not wobble at all, even when erasing large areas or burnishing. It is also nice that I can move it around by myself when I want to draw something in a different room. I have not used the horizontal tilt, but it just might inspire me to start exploring watercolor! I love, love, love this easel. It's a good price for very nice quality.
