Am I the only one that sees other artists' art studios on Facebook and Pinterest and instantly transform into the epitome of jealousy?
Found here, with 21 other gorgeous art studios that make you say FML
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YALL BUT I'm a little lacking on the 'studio' department. Or any kind of designated art space for that matter. My 'art studio' consists of a 9'x7' sun room, which I share with a large amount of two year old toys.
IF I EVER NEED ANY EXTRA SPACE I will also utilize the kitchen counters, or the living room floor. And if it's not 200 degrees outside with a heat index of 600, I will work on the patio.
But a girl can dream can't she?.. Here are some examples of my future art studio

YOU GET THE IDEA, BASICALLY I WANT a lot of windows, a huge open space, lot's of supplies, and room to work and store work. Ahhh.. the dreams of an artist..
..WITH DIGITAL ART..
I'm not an expert at creating digital art or anything, and I don't have anykind of fancy photoshop programs. But I do have a pretty extensive collection of amazing photos on Pinterest, & a badass app on my tablet called PicsArt. I've always enjoyed editing photos, dressing them up with different filters and adjusting exposure and saturation. Then that kind of turned into creating cute little pictures of my daughter, just for fun.
And then it turned into trying to create references for my paintings. I almost always work from a reference. I like to anyway. And with the kind of pictures I want to create, I wind up using five to ten different references.. I thought it would be easier if I digitally created the picture I wanted to paint. But then after actually doing that, and seeing how fucking awesome the digital version of my unpainted painting was.. I developed a pretty hard crush on digital art. Don't tell Paintbrush.
