How big is your working area......do you squeeze all your art materials in a small corner or do you have a large working area where everything is to hand.

Is your work space in your lounge or bedroom or do you have an art studio.......Are you a messy worker or do you prefer a clean work area......

 

This is my art workstation.....It's quite small as I don't have a lot of room but is just perfect for me as everything is to hand ...

As I work mainly with copic markers I have divided them into separate colours so it's easy to find the colour I want to use.....I also have my inks to hand for when I do backgrounds and also my watercolours for when I'm working on a mixed media piece.....I have shelves for my paper and a light box for tracing my artwork onto heavier scale paper etc.....I really love my little work space and because it's in my lounge I really do have to keep it all tidy....I do have a small room at the back of my house which I could use as a studio but it's very cold in the Winter even with the wall heater I have in it,  so for now I am just happy to work in my warm lounge.....

Would love to hear about your work area so please feel free to tell us about it and add pics too if you want to.....

Thank you....I love it too......I now have all my copic markers sorted into colours instead of having to try find the colour I want to use by sifting through them all when they were in a box.....xx

Oh yeah, I know the feeling so well!! Makes me happy!!

I love this topic.  It's cool to see people's work spaces.  Mine is quite small, usually just me in a chair drawing on my lap!  I guess I could post a picture of my lap, but that would be weird.  :)


CheekyJane your space has been bugging me.  I want it!  lol  I HAVE to redo my workspace and have been looking for storage.  Can you please tell me where you purchased your pieces? It 's going to be my Christmas, I think! :)
