This is my new artspace. Carving out a space where I can do art has been an on-going process. As I get more materials, I have to re-organize. I may end up re-organizing again as I work with this set up. It really depends what materials I will be accessing the most. I was psyched to work with my gouache paints, then pastels and charcoal have been grabbing my attention.
This is my paper and journal storage area. Plus, I am squeezing spray fixer, matte spray, gesso, and masking fluid.
I turned a three-tiered galvanized stand into an art supply caddy. I may get a lazy Susan under it. I put my inks, Dr. Ph Brown’s watercolors, soft pastels, gesso, and watercolor grounds.
To the left, I got these drawer containers from Target to hold all my gouache paints by color.
Frustrated that I couldn’t find more drawers like I did for my gouache paints, I found these stackable plastic containers to put my watercolor tubes in. They save more space than the drawers.
When I want to work with watercolors, I can dissemble the stacked containers like so. Then, when I am done, I can stack them back up.
My cat, Yuki is interested in the new set up.
