These are some shots of my studio in 2007. I've barely used it
since 06... some commissions, prepping some signs for demonstrations...
putting together boxbooks, prepping work for exhibition. A good third
of the space is storage as you can see. The window behind the easel is
north, two double fluorescents above. Ran across a great deal on the
drawing file... prior to that my drawings were vulnerable, on top of a
painting crate, not even completely flat. I have another storage space
on a loft above my office space and of course there aresome paintings
on the walls, not inch to inch in deference to others I live with. I
built that simple easel, two 1 x 4s" leaning against the wall, with a
ledge, vertically adjustable via drilled holes and bolts, to hold the
variously sized paintings.
You can see the palette is a rectangle of 1/4"
glass w/a white surface underneath. I was using acrylics here but
back-when I would arrange colors in a sequence, black & white then
the reds together, orange, yellow, green blues... a sort of spectrum,
Kandinsky's keyboard of the emotions... that is until I started
painting in heavy impasto. That called for mixing one color at a time
in a large quantity.
