My studio space

Thursday is my last day at college, when we have to clear out our studio. So I started taking some my samples and worksheets home today and we took some photos. It was really sad clearing out all the work for the last time. My friend and I share a table (I’m on the left and only my side is shown). My work just kind of spreads over as much wall space as I can get away with! There’s basically no storage space apart from a tiny locker outside so this is the only way I can keep my paper flat!
My friend and I have 13 big pots of printing ink mixed up between us…
The strip of fabric where I sample my colours as I mix them (as you can tell, it took me a long time to get the “right green”!)…

At home I’m such a neat freak, so I don’t know how this happened…

Whenever my friend or I need to do some cutting on a mat, or a drawing, we have to go to someone else’s desk to do it. Because ours is literally about a foot high in fabric/ paper/ chocolate wrappers.

I don’t want to leave college 🙁 It feels like I’ve only just started! A year isn’t long enough.
Last week I had soo many ideas for posts. And this week my brain is empty. So I hope this isn’t too boring! I’m sure some ideas will come to me soon. I have plans to do some shopping this week so maybe I’ll post my purchases!
Lots of love xxx

    The right green is so hard to find. I spent $100-plus on pencils last week because I wasn't happy with my selection of greens – well that's what started me hunting for new pencils. Now I have so many hues to play with.
