Limited Space for Painting-Ideas Needed

Could someone point me to any discussion about setting up a painting space? One of my students is gradually becoming less and less mobile. Soon she will not be able to pull out her folding table, set everything up, etc. She will only have a tiny area that she can devote to a permanent space for painting. I want to suggest her just using a pochade set up or French easel that can stay set up in the corner of her living room. Does anyone have any photos of that kind of set up? I also thought she might be able to install shelves or some other kind of vertical storage next to the easel. Any photos would be appreciated. I just want her to be able to continue painting. Thanks!

Re: Limited Space for Painting-Ideas Needed

you can also set up a space in a walk-in closet, or even a regular closet. Close the door and everything is out-of-sight

Re: Limited Space for Painting-Ideas Needed

A mast type panel holder on a tripod is a very versatile "easel" that can be used sitting in a chair or wheel chair, standing, sitting on the floor, laying / sitting on the edge of a bed, etc. A small shelf that attaches to the two front legs can hold the mixing palette, solvent / medium cups and brushes. Add a taboret on wheels to hold all the materials and you would have a compact and portable studio setup that could remain in place if desired but without losing the ability to adapt to different positions as needed.

This is one fairly nice version of many pre-made or do it yourself solutions out there ranging from very inexpensive to VERY expensive. I built mine from scratch for under $60 including the tripod.
