Hey guys. I'm in the process of building myself a new easel. Its made of Pine and I have to admit I really like it in its natural color. I am planning to install all round black curtains next, and I know Mark paints his easels black. Would a light colored easel have any noticeable effect in terms of how I perceive color or add any additional or unwanted reflections? Originally I thought if I go all the way with the black curtains then I might just as well stain the easel a dark color too, but now I'm having second thoughts. Its really pretty.
