In the last post I showed you pictures of the studio after the Autumn clean and tidy.

Here are some of the items on the tables that are just waiting for the right moment….

Top layers are Lutradur, some painted with procions, the top layer stamped with acrylic paint and further embellished with rubbings using markal oil sticks – this is waiting for a layer of ink.

Bottom layers (crinkled) are bondaweb painted with acrylic paint.

And at this time of year I need my heating on!  But now the walls and roof are insulated its snuggly warm even on the coldest day.

    I don't have those postcards from IKEA and this is the closest we have ever lived to one (about 10 mins, 15 with traffic) and i've only been 3 times!!
    The studio looks wonderful and cosy, and i LOVE the pink/purple paintings.

    Can I just ask, do you heat your studio when you are not working in it? Like overnight and such? I use an oilfilled radiator in my much smaller (12'x9') summerhouse/studio but find it so expensive to run and have a constant battle with myself trying to decide whether it's worth it but I have had canvases spoilt with damp marks probably due to condensation.

    those African fabrics look remarkably similar to the ones which tempted me at Ally Pally – I expect we will approach them differently though – Dale
