Over the moon to report that the new studio is finally finished. We started the project over six months ago and while it has taken time away from painting, its great to have a space that is so comfortable and enjoyable to work in. I'm really pleased to be fully installed and have some exciting projects to get started on.
The picture shows the portrait space, with natural north light and an LED panel light for winter evenings. The mezzanine (accessed by the ladder) has proved amazingly capacious and means I can stash all kinds of things out of the way, leaving the downstairs free for working. A few friends have subsequently asked for my thoughts in relation to improving or developing their own studios. If you have questions about my new set up or want any advice, do get in touch.
