Dear Artist,
How to Set Up your Studio and Supplies
Things I do Before I Paint.

Preparation is a big deal for me. Before I start a painting, I assemble everything I am going to need. First of all, I make a decision - Paper or canvas. Then, I get out only the tubes of color and the few brushes that I need for that painting, and I put everything else away. I keep a water bucket, spray bottle for isopropyl alcohol and paper towels close by - within arm's reach. The only other thing I keep on my painting table is my sketchbook with my written goals and ideas for this painting. 

So I don't have to look for anything while painting, I put everything on the right side (I'm right-handed). If you are left handed, your tools go on the left side. It's a simple set-up idea, I know -  and it works for me.

Some may call this procrastinating... I call this time PERCOLATING!
