In what position do you paint? Is it sitting in a chair in front of an easel? Is it standing or maybe on the floor or a table? I have an easel but I don't use it very often. I paint on my lap. Even a big canvas or board will end up on my lap and I turn it every which way to get to the part I'm working on. I stop now and then and place it at a distance to see how it looks. I paint in my kitchen, bedroom, studio and living room. I have not painted in the bathroom yet! I just move things to whatever room I feel like working in at the time. LOL.
