I do a lot of different mediums in my art process. I have set up working stations around my studio to make them all convenient and organized. I got the idea when I was teaching elementary school art for a couple of years, right out of art school, many moons ago.
I have an acrylic station, with spray bottle, gels, mediums, my paints , brushes and a table top easel at one table, I have a casein set up at another, a pencil, colored pencil, ink, and marker set up at another table, a paper cutting table, and finally, my big easel with an oils set up there.
I can simply move around the room and get to work immediately wherever I wish to paint or draw that day. It allows me to work quickly, with no down time at all in my schedule. I have a lot of plates spinning in the air all the time, and having a studio that is organized makes all the difference for me. The key here is not having to take the tie to set up for any medium. It is already done.
