Setting up my Workspace


A couple of weeks ago I taught at Guadalupe's Fun Rubber Stamps in Santa Fe, New Mexico. While there, I bought the metal/burlap containers as well as the heavy plastic faux porcelain tray.  They sit on top of a standing desk from Ikea. 
I wanted something to keep my paints within reach while working at my new easel. So far, I'm very happy with the system. The brushes are kept in a bag in the container. I've been putting paints and markers that I'm using on the tray for easy access. 

I'm thinking of buying a light for the easel (or an Ottlite lightbulb for the light above my head) as well as a side shelf for the easel. Still getting things set up but I've done one full page using the easel with my art journal and I'm in love!

Looks like a great setup! I've been doing art for five years and don't have an easel yet so I'm going to plan on getting one this year.
