Hello again everyone...  :blush: appologies for the long absence in the forum ... I absolutely  :smitten: all the studio photos... making me feel a little  :envy: at the moment  :blush:

I used to have my own studio before we sold our house a few years ago.  Just over a year ago we moved back into a three bedroomed house.  Normally it's just my husband, my son and myself....so one bedroom will under normal circumstances be available as a studio... however we decided to 'help' out my eldest brother-in-law... and he moved in with us, as we moved into this house. It was just going to be temporarily... well needless to say... he is still here...  :thumbdown: a year and 3 months later  :-\

My 'studio' is currently our bedroom... and my easle and artstuff is all over in our room.  Have sort of got it organised, but impossible to have everything in one area due to the limited space.  Also when I paint, I have to unpack everything...   :thumbdown: on the bed ... My easle is a bit in the way too... so when I have painted... I really stress that one of us will bump into the painting... especially when it's done in oil.  Once I finished painting... I have to pack everything up again... So the frustration levels are a bit high at the moment where my  :painting: is concerned and unfortunately have a very negative impact on my art too.  Make no mistake it's great to be able to help somebody out... however the problem comes in when that person takes advantage of kindness.

So Valweb... I can sooo relate to your comment where you said "I find if I have to pack away each time I don't paint.".  I think this is also why I have been so quiet on the forum... I have really not been  active in painting I am sad to say, I have however been keeping up to date reading the various posts.

I am really soooo looking forward to my brother-in-law moving out... don't know when that will be and how many more months it will still take.  I am really praying for the day to come sooner than later, because the moment he does move... I am moving my artstuff immediately into that room... it's got perfect lighting and space.  I will be dancing around with happiness...and you guys will be the first to know and will then post my photos too... what a glorious day that would be :yippee:

MOW, you have such a kind and generous heart  :flowers:. You'll be rewarded some day for your kindness.

My studio now was once my son's room, then he moved out, then it became my daughters room and she got married. While her moving truck was still in the driveway I was rearranging the room and  creating my space, one of the joys of being an empty nester  ;D.

Hello MOW!  :welcome: back. I know what you mean and can very much sympathise. Don't let it put you off. Perhaps  consider using acrylics or water colour. Even oil pastels as an alternative while you wait?
Stick around and chin up kid!

 :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: Valweb...the loo... :2funny: canning myself here... I have missed you all terribly too and it is good to be back and super knowing I was missed  :blush:

Seeing as I have been struggling to paint... I got myself as far as painting 2 biggish colourwheels on canvas sheets.  One colour wheel consists of the primaries (if I understand correctly seems to be warm tones overall as in a warm yellow, warm red and warm blue =ultramarine) and the other colourwheel of the cooler tones lemon yellow, pthalo blue and alizarin crimson... and to take it a step further...I divided the each colour's section in 2... the one side for the main colour/mix colour and other side with it mixed with 50% white... The artist Helen Van Wyk always said...the best way to know how a colour behaves is to add some white to it. Must say I am pretty impressed with it.

With encouragement like I experience here, how can I not paint... :D

 :yippee: Good Mow...let's see those paintings! 

The best lessons we can learn about colour is to actually paint the colour wheel.

To try and help get this thread back on topic, how about posting your 'studio'? We'd all love to see were you painted these color wheels at.
