The Artist's Studio - Part II

Welcome back to the 3T Art Blog. This week, we continue to look at the Artist’s Studio. Our focus in this post is on your studio's workstation.

The way we set up our workstations has a huge impact on how productive we are when we’re creating our latest masterpiece. No matter what media you use, you need to have room to work and have your supplies at your finger-tips.

Are you happy with your current workstation set up? What changes could you make?

I’ve had many workstations with different layouts over the years and it’s taken a while to figure out what’s best for me. I’d like to pass on some ideas to help you get set up and working as effectively as possible.

First, ask yourself a few questions. Do you feel more comfortable working at an easel or a table? Does your choice of media work better for an easel or a table? For example, if you’re a watercolour artists, you may prefer working at a table instead of an easel. I work at both, using an easel when I paint medium to large sized artwork or when I draw, but prefer to work at a table when I paint small pieces.
