A Visit to the Studio
I've been asked a number of times to post some photos of my studio for all the atelier voyeurs out there. Because I've just had to clean it up for our local Open Studios weekend, I guess this is a good time to
put up some photos. These were all taken, hurriedly, with my phone.
They weren't intended to be the basis of a blog post. So be kind!
Above is a very grainy photo of a 48x72" painting in progress, with my palette table to the right.
And the palette table, closer up.
And here are a couple of other shots around the studio.
It's a bit dark for many artists' practice, but it suits me just fine. You'll see that I keep the venetian blinds drawn. Since what I'm painting isn't actually in front of me, I don't need the even temperature of north light. But I do need consistency. By always painting under my lights, the conditions are always the same and----day or night----I can pick up exactly where I left off, under exactly the same conditions as I had left it.
