I'm glad you posted another view of your studio. For some reason I had you working in a cramped basement. I added a mirror and a work table to my studio this evening. The mirror has a gilded frame. Carla's essay was really nice.
I want to go work in Steven's studio. This shot of mine was quickly staged. I was in the middle of doing wall finish samples, hence all the yogurt containers.
That doesn't appear cramped to you? I hate having to work around day job bits. Shelves stacked here, doors over there. I was just re-looking at Carla's pic and noticed what I thought were universal colorants or tint bottles? Also the spray bottle, which I have to always be careful that I'm spattering a piece of furniture and not overspraying onto my fine fine art. I had big plans when we moved in to really keep the space austere and inviting. I wanted to entertain guests down there. I still have the antique wall paper picked out. . . oh well. As far as mirrors go, I went to visit a portrait painter's studio here in town and he had a mirror opposite his stage so that he could turn and look at his painting and the model in reverse. It was a cool. I didn't have the heart to tell him though that all I have to do is turn the painting upside down.
Your studio looks orderly to me. Universal tints, yes. I am growing weary of having to rearrange dec painting supplies in order to paint. I knew someone who looked at his paintings through binoculars, turned around so the work was further away.I usually opt for the ole bend over and look between the legs. sometimes one gets a head rush as a bonus.
