Get Organized with a Practice Wall
Do you sometimes walk into your studio area only to be overwhelmed with the mess? Where do you start? Can't find exactly what you're looking for?
Here's a tip I use in my studio - my painting subjects are varied in themes and techniques, so I store each subject in plastic bins or files. It's a simple idea and by keeping on top and ahead of studio daily "chores" - my constructive and painting time has actually increased.
Even my Practice Wall is divided in subject categories: Fruits & Vegetables, Florals, Landscapes, Figures etc. All are pinned on the practice wall in groups.
These small studies are my studio warm ups - right now, here are my favorite sizes for paper studies: 6"x9" * 10"x10" * 9"x12"
Summary... I spend less time getting ready to paint, and have a lot more productive studio time. I come from a corporate design background so... excuse me! I like to keep things organized.
