Like any job that requires sitting at a desk for hours at a time, your posture can be very important. The health and safety guidelines call for a straight upright posture with your knees bent at 90 degrees and your feet flat on the ground. I'm not usually a fan of all the H&S BS, but I've found these tips actually work well.

Also, your natural inclination is to slouch forward no matter you hard you try to stay straigh, but I find having my desk a 6 or 8 inches higher than you'd normally have it helps to keep you sitting straight. It also helps with bracing your arms on the edge when you need that steady hand for the small details.

@Squire, The couch is fine if you are only painting sporadically, but for any longer than an hour you should probably try something different.
