|Painting Table Next to Arcadia Doors for Natural Light|
Plus New LED lighting Above Table
Before getting the new floor we decided to get rid of the pool table that used to fill much of the open space shown in the top photograph. I've been wanted to teach some classes but despite having the entire basement primarily dedicated to my studio, the pool table filled the space where I can now setup tables. Once I finish defining my class syllabus I should be in business.
As you can see in the second photograph my painting table is next to a set of arcadia doors, so I get natural light. That natural light is augmented by LED lighting above and behind my painting table that is rate the same degrees kelvin as sunlight. The extra lighting helps out on cloudy days. I have a nice tilting table where I paint plus a side cart where the paint, pallette, variety of brushes, spray bottle with water, and rinsing water sit. Behind me (on the left side of this picture) is my desk and computer where I play music while I paint.
|Area to Display Finished Painting|
My painting table sits in the corner of an L-shaped room. Looking to my right at the far end of the long side of the L-shape is a painting storage area, in the rack on the right.
|Painting Storage Area|
I can display additional paintings along the walls and in a book shelf that is perfect for some small paintings and for paint storage.
