View Full Version : Tidying up the Studio

My work space is small and I used to have my paint tubes all over a tray next to my easel. It was a mess.
I found these inexpensive small cabinets, and all the paint and medium fits neatly in them and out of sight. Plus, they are easy to reach now.

And pretty too.
Sure beats keeping them under the dining room table in plastic shoe boxes like I do !:rolleyes:

Very pretty! However, being me, I'd never be able to live with anything that compact and neat. I'm the plastic box on the floor type also.:D

Now baskets or boxes for the paints & clear glasses for the brushes which are in order btw!! At least I can find the stuff-----thanks for sharing yours impressionist2---i am a fan of your work and paint impressionistically as well--------WHEN I can keep curb my need for detail!!

Hi All, This is so funny. I am not a neat housekeeper! Obsessed with my art, my realtime artfriends and I always laugh about our "tornado run" at the end of the day before hubby gets home!
I hate housework and consider it cutting into my time to paint.
I bought and hung these for self preservation. The corner clutter was too high to control. Isn't that what the basement is for? :D
Joke is my perfect housekeeper daughter in law keeps saying "The room looks so much wider and looks like it has more room. What did you do?" I just got the junk up off the floor, is all.
Artbabe, Buy yourself the biggest brushes you can buy and then paint the same painting. You'll get loose fast. You won't be able to do detail!

I don'i like house work either, but I don't mess up anything, therefore I don't have to clean anything! My "studio" is a small corner in my 9' x11' room with a small table, a drawing lamp, pencils, pens, a small shelf for my brushes (which I don't know how to use yet :D) and a shelf for my paint. Everything else (books, sketch pads, paper, lightbox) under the small table. That's my studio!

Thanks Renee-----though I have the larger brushes, I have to WANT to grab them, so far it hasn't happened. Guess it's that habit thing, so I will have to take a canvas that I don't expect to make a masterpiece of and just go for the big brushes and see what comes of it. Thanks for reminding me!! But on the other hand I seem to wonder perhaps THIS is who I am-- an anal, detailed type painter who can't loosen up!! Whata thought!!:(
