Setting Up Your Sudio (Part Two)

In my Studio I have a large work desk made from Beech. It was made to my specifications around twenty years ago by a joiner friend.

Although it is quite a large piece of furniture, I feel that I could not manage with it being any smaller. As you can see from the photographs, it has an adjustable slope which I use for both Watercolour and Oil painting.
I also have an A2 ‘self- healing’ cutting mat which is permanently on the slope.
To the right of the slope I have a good sized worktop for layout purposes and for all the miscellaneous pieces of equipment I may need during the painting process.

Underneath the bench top I have a small metal cabinet of drawers which holds pencils, pens rulers etc, together with a small stock of watercolour and oil paints. I also have two vertical slots for storing watercolour papers, oil boards etc. My hairdryer hangs by a cup hook from the underside of the bench.

Should you be interested in the dimensions of my workbench, they are:

1500mm x 800mm x 750mm high

The adjustable slope is 700mm x 600mm and can be adjusted from flat to an angle of approx 75 degrees.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.

Part Three, will deal with the storage of all your materials, paintings etc. and studio seating.
