Natural light, if you can get it is such a plus to have in a studio; I love that I have southeast light. Trays flank either side of this massive table. In them I keep the colors of paints I'm presently using, in the other I may keep embellshments, bits of paper I may use. I use butcher paper to place my project/canvas on. Brushes, glue, gesso, is only an arms length away.
