"Studio Inspirations"


Pinned Image

Every artist needs a place to paint, and sometimes we're gifted with exceptional spaces... or sometimes we're simply satisfied with propping up a canvas in a dresser drawer.  As long as we have good light (Preferably Northern) we're usually good to go.

Ideally a painter's studio is removed from the rest of the house..so paint doesn't reach couches or brushes aren't washed in the same sinks where people cook or brush their teeth. Love how this one also opens up to the outdoors!

Sometimes a studio can be small if it has great Northern Light as this one has. I personally would always choose Light rather than size constraint.

Height of an artist studio is relatively important. In this case this means that some fairly tall canvases can take advantage of the extra room. L.O.V.E.

I'd wager this generously sized studio faces North. Lucky artist has gift of both size and Light in this jewel!!!!


My actual painting studio is small by industry standards, but it has incredible Northern Light.  I have a newer portion of space that I recently moved into ~ it's there that I create my sculpted clay pieces and soldered creations.  Oh and did I mention I started a new canvas yesterday?  Thought I'd give y'all a peek.

Hope everyone's having a sensational weekend!

Okay, I'm drooling-mine's not so big either, but the whole north side is windows.
