My Studio

Hello friends! I thought it would be nice to share with you some details of my studio. It's a very light place (don't be mistaken, I took the pictures at night), with large windows, well ventilated. The only drawback are the sunny days. Sometimes it gets hotter than hell!! But even on sunny days it's a very pleasant place to work. It's here I spend most of my hours, mostly at night and weekends. If I have a large drawing to do I use the bigger easel. If it's too small I will use the smaller easel. Well, that's it. Welcome to my studio!!

On this picture you can see my main easel (I have 4). It's a big, sturdy, heavy, stable easel that holds canvas up to 3 meters high. At left, my table with my (clean) pallete, a selection of my brushes, paper towel, paints; laying on the back of my easel are some canvases and panels; at right another (smaller) easel I use for sketches and smaller paintings.

This is a close up of my table, and you can see a couple of books I'm using for reference, my Palmtop (where would I be without it!), and the cable tv control (where would I be without it!!).
