I think that shadow from the blinds would drive me insane while working !

LOL, they're not a problem Stephen because I can easily open them if they fall onto the easel.

There's a special blind in all the windows that diffuses light as well so its a pretty all round solution that works well when I need it to!

I didn't realize you are a lefty! My husband is as well, and also a fantastic artist. :D I like your set up, some great natural light from the skylight :D

First tip: Beg to be tutored to Mark Raats. Or, just be Mark Raats. :P

BA HA HA HA HA. Okay, a good comfy chair helps too. I can't stand doing anything on an uncomfy chair....or the floor with nothing to support my back. That's just not fun!

I think there are definitely too less left handed artists out there! By the way, your stuff is simply awesome!
