Hi all, I paint in my "Cabin", which could be loosely described as a studio, which is, essentially, a reasonable sized shed (or Summer House, if you live in the right area!!) with windows and with the wonderful advantage of power and light.
Here, I can leave everything where it is without causing a small Third World War!
Joking apart, Carol, my wife would encourage me to paint in the house, but I like to leave everything as it is and couldn't stand tidying away after every session, especially if I'm working on a commission, or other painting.
Its my space, and I can play whatever music I want (always music when painting!) and leave everything where it is, ready for the next session.
