First of all thank you for still being there, it is nice to know. 🙂
For the new year my biggest challenge was to sort out my studio to give me extra storage and create a space that I wanted to be in. I had in my mind a big dresser with cupboard space in the bottom and a bookshelf on the top. When I looked at what was available the cost was pretty prohibitive at £600 – £1500. We then looked around for something we could adapt and were lucky enough to find a big old sideboard type thing with a drawer that pulled out into a desk and a bookshelf which had a secret compartment at the back. Together they cost £100 which was a much better price. I did forget to take a photo before I started but you must all be used to me by now :0
A tin of chalk paint, some sandpaper…..a whole lot of dust and mess and some wax later I have a wonderful new storage space for all my lovely art supplies.
I had to take the photo in two bits as the room is not big enough for me to get far enough back but I am very pleased with my (and my hubby’s) efforts.
It is the first step in getting a nice calm space to work and produce more drawings like this one which I realised I had not shown you the finished version of.
I just love those eyes.
