My workshop

I’ve set up the corner of the workshop with the easel and workbench.

I applied gesso to a raw canvas. I have to wait 24 hours for the white goo to dry and then I’ll have to see if I should sand it and apply another coat.

Spreading pure white primer all over the canvas is incredibly frustrating because I was in a creative mood and wanted to start painting. In an ideal studio, I’d always have a primed and ready canvas ready on deck.

So instead, I did about 3 sketches of various scenes in my head from Raku. If I get brave, I’ll start posting these kinds of ramblings here.

The easel light I bought was a waste of money. I’m going to take it back and just go to Lowe’s and buy 2 or 3 clamp on lights.
