I am a slightly messy, somewhat chaotic painter who is fortunate to have a studio of her own. About four years ago, as I outgrew my other studio I took over what was the master bedroom. Yay! (what a husband, eh?) I have outgrown that by now and long for the reconstruction of the entire attic. (yeah, right!)
Let me walk you through my space. The first photo was taken as you walk into the studio. I have placed my easel so that I can step back far (through the door and down the hallway) and I can still see the painting. I like to sneak up on my work. On the right side top is looking from the north windows. I keep the small paintings that are inspiring my current work on the wall. Below you see into two of my flat file drawers. These things saved me from myself and my messy tendencies. Four drawers have just pastels (unison, schminke, diane townsend, girault, great american, and sennelier), one has paints and palettes (watercolor and oil) and the rest of the drawers store paper and finished work. The bottom photo is my watercolor palette, it's my plein air one, I was using it today so it's out. I have a bigger one as well.
My other studio is the back of my car. I will show you that on another day.
OK, anyone else want to show their space?
