This is an overview of my studio supplies. I keep my paper palette on my sculpture stand, and my tubes, pigment sticks, oil bars, cold wax medium, OMS, pastels and powdered pigment are all right where I can reach them. I do have other paints and supplies tucked away for other forms of creativity. I actually took over the dining room table this week so I could experiment with some paper and inks.
I've tried to separate my colors by transparent and opaque, but that is pretty much a lost cause. If my space were pristine, or even organized, I think I'd have a harder time working.
Even the board behind my workbench surface is covered with quotes, photos, postcards, letters and other ephermera that lend their spirit to my space and my work.
I work on many paintings at the same time. These are in various stages of completion. Even when I think I am done with one, I have to wait a day or more before I can confirm that it is finished. When I walk into my studio and my heart leaps with joy, I know this is the way it needs to stay.
p.s. I can't seem to master the new editor on blogspot. Bear with me as I figure out how to make it look better.
