Hello Everyone, My husband and I are designing our retirement home and I have the task of designing the space for my art studio. I work in several mediums, Oil, Pastels, and Watercolor. One would think after being cramped in the corner of my kitchen for years this would be an easy task, but I feel overwhelmed and excited at the same time. I would welcome any advise on things to consider. So far the must have list is:
- Large work table
- 2 easels
- Book shelves
- Full spectrum lighting
- Work chair
Hi Susan Lang (that is my daughter's name, too).
Wish you the best and I agree....you definitely need a storage cabinet. Half of my bedroom is my "studio" and "office" until my son is able to get his own house...then there will be a transformation for sure!
Shelving and cabinet storage are essential....and as one of my artist friends says....'you can never have enough brushes'.
I work mainly with watercolor pencils and some acrylic paints. Sometimes I switch back to graphite pencils and simply produce a detailed sketch. I prefer more detail in my finished work. Have not yet attempted oils, though I recently viewed a demonstration by a local artist and was 'captured' by it.
Wishing you the very best in setting up your studio....if you take photos....please share.
