WOYWW?

Afternoon all :)

Still no desk as such to show you this week. Every afternoon this past week has been spent down the unit getting my stu-stu-studio ready. There has been scrubbing and painting and sweeping and hoovering a plenty going on.

Breaking news *insert appropriate newsflash music here* I remembered the camera today so this is where we are right at this very moment.

Starting pictures are in the post below...

This will become my clean area and will have my sewing machine and old PC on, I'll also probably use it for drawing and stuff like that. On the opposite wall Craig is going to put some racking up.

And before you ask - yes I did paint straight over the pin board. If it was nailed down, it got painted ;)

This is going to be my messy area. That shelving unit is really, REALLY sturdy. Craig tried to saw it in half when he first got the unit and it bit back. His pain is my gain however. *g* My sister said she has a spare bit of kitchen worktop so if it's still available I'll be putting that on the top, lick of paint to the shelves and this will be my messy, painty station. My easel will also go up this end.
...and finally this is my view through the adjoining window. Craig - my landlord, soon to be accountant and my lovely blokey. Doesn't he look poorly, bless'im.

So looks like you were all right and we may have overestimated our 6 weeks - it's looking like it will be sometime next week I'll be in! Eek! It's exciting and scary at the same time.

Fancy snooping round some more desks and doing a bit of flashing yourself? Head on over to the wondrous one known as Julia and link up so we can all find you :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  18. I would Love to tell you that I am an Ace photographer.

    But I am not

    I have a Nikon D80 with The Most Expensive Lens I could Afford - the lens cost me more than the body (you saw it in action (only you didn;t because you were too engrossed in your art) when I visited you, it's how I got that (half) shot of you...

    sometimes I use it properly but you can set it up so it does all the work for you,

    and it captures in RAW

    which means when you open a raw image in photoshop you can adjust the image to match the real thing if the camera did not capture it completely accurately. So long as you do not over expose ) so no nekkedness)

    i never bother much for the blog - but for things like my paintings - I photograph them accurately so I can put the originals on my proper website to sell...then I can also use the images for anything else I want to do too...

    it also means you can do some really arty farty photography when you want to, keep an archive and generally realise it is no wonder I only get three good paintings out of myself per year.

    but it also means getting up at day break and being out at sunset and it takes hours to get a good shot...

    and it constantly reminds me how crap out daylight is in the uk.

    if you want a good camera at a reasonable price get one of the panasonic compacts that have the leica lens - it does fab stuff at a lower price than you would normally pay just for the lens for an SLR...

    because I like having nice stuff - that is why I work silly hours.

  27. Oh my lord, Carmen - it's amazing! To say I am jealous is an understatement (but envious is a much nicer word - you deserve it!). I've just had a little catch up on your blog and I am totally in awe of your goals for 2011 - I have no doubt that you'll do brilliantly, but you know we are all here cheering you on...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow your own studio I'm jealous and you get it to spend it with your lovely bloke which is lovely.

  29. Carmen this is such an excitement! 2011 and Craig and the unit and...gosh, my head is spinning for you. It's an awesome amount of space....no doubt you won't even notice the creeping sort of filling up that happens!
