Daily painting #100: My studio

To mark my 100th straight day of daily painting, I thought I’d show you where I do a lot of my work — my little studio, in my basement. When I paint a still life, I often use my easel light, a spotlight on the subject — and no other lights. So it’s bit dark, especially in the evening. I tried to convey that here. I was going for a sort of medieval atelier ambiance.

I’m going to take a break from daily painting now, as I have some longer-term art projects (I haven’t forgotten you, Tup!), plus the start of school in a couple weeks. But I’ll still be posting here, as I have plenty of stuff I haven’t gotten around to showing you all yet. Thanks for reading!

Daily painting #26: Studio sink

I had ambitions of painting my entire studio, but I didn’t start until 10:30 pm, so I had to scale back and settle for the studio sink. Even this narrower subject proved too much given the late hour; I had to cut out lots of interesting studio clutter. I’ll try it again when I have more time! In the meantime, I did learn something about painting sinks.
