Second try.

For now the windows are serving as wall space for my paintings. These are all on panels so the light doesn't shine through. Later we'll put up picture rail for some of them; wall space is at a minimum here.

And last, if this is still working. This is Clea by the rocks. Her new pug puppy, Pendleton, is on the ground but out of this picture.

How wonderful for you. This looks like a very warm, yet light filled space. Let me know how the skylight works for you. do you have blinds for it? I see some great paintings coming from this studio

Hi Pat,

The sun from the skylights is never in the area I paint, so I don't think they will be a problem. I'm already repainting Jux, everything is wrong now that I can see it. All my colors dance on the palette instead of looking flat. Before I had to get my nose up to the pigment to see whether it was raw umber or black. No problem now!

How do you like your new studio, is there a thread on it?

Jean

Hi Jean, Congratulations on the new house and studio! I'm delighted for you and keep us postd as to how the spce is working for you. I'm betting that you will have some lighting issues if you want to paint your models from life there and I'm interested to learn how you'll solve them.

I admire all you artists who can paint with somebody else in the room (other than a model) on a regular basis. I doubt that I could do that.

I'm also glad to see the tattoed man painting is still in your studio, I'm a fan of this one, you know.

Jean,

This looks wonderful, congratulations!

Just one thing to be aware of...my last place was all warm honey pine walls like yours is here. It really does affect the way light looks as it bounces around. If you are aware of it though, it's easy enough to compensate.

Kim,

I've noticed the difference in the quality of the light and the honey tones it creates. I'm repainting "Jux", (the tattoo guy) and actually I'm seeing that the color is much more real now. Maybe the shades are filtering some of that gold out, as I work in a corner of windows. I've carried him around to other areas of the house and he looks much better in every room, including outside. I also compensate some with cool, daylight flourescent lights. I am having some problems as the light changes during the day though, so I'm going to have to do some problem solving.

Linda,

I decided that I can't photograph anyone in the sunroom due to the lack of any strong directional light, it comes from all directions! I'm going to make shades for the skylights, using "block out" fabric, so I can at least control what comes in from the ceiling. There are also many other rooms in the house that I could use. Everyone wants to be in the sunroom, but I also really like the living room which is all north light. So I'm considering moving in there. That way I can have my private space and a fireplace too. I'll post a phot of that room when I get the camera out again. I'm getting ready for my first art fair now, Aug 6th and 7th. "Jux" has to be almost done for this so I'm a little crazy.

Claudmir,

Yes, I love this space but hate sharing it. I may move to a different room because of the lighting and noise problems. My husband likes sports and that is very distracting!

Jean
