|My Studio Setup|
Over the past few years, I have incorporated different tools to help my productivity. As you can see, I use Carol Marine's Panel Holder on my easel for my smaller paintings; it is a great tool for keeping the panel in place, in addition to allowing you to paint off all four sides of the painting.
For my palette, I typically cover a 16" x 24" piece of Masonite with grey palette paper for a large mixing area, however, for this small painting I just used the 12" x 16" Paper Palette Pad. After a long day of painting, it's nice to have easy clean up with a disposable palette. Now, if I can only hire someone to clean my brushes, it is my most dreaded chore.
|Still Life Setup|
I do not have a still life shadow box, therefore, I use a large bookshelf with adjustable shelves to control the lighting and perspective of my subject.
|Still life Prop Shelves|
My collection of still life props is growing, as you can see I have an affinity for glass objects. I love finding new props at local thrift stores, but I am running out of space.
