Description
The user places the paper on a small easel on the wheelchair table, with the paints and water next to it. He uses various types of mouth sticks to hold the brush, see associated tip.

Users comments
When painting by mouth the user has limited reach and it is important to have all accessories close at hand. The user has a small box of watercolors on one side of the easel and a water glass on the other side.

When he draws for long periods he becomes tired. He is working on designing a forehead stick. The problem is that he has ideas, but no technicians to implement them.
