Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencil Set

The first time I used this brand of colored pencil was in 1985 when I worked at the Pearl Paint in Paramus, NJ.
I was working in the pencil and pen isle when I discovered that out of all the colored pencils, "Prismacolor" seemed to be the easiest to work with. They were vibrant in color and laid down nicely on illustration board. Compared to other pencils that were either too hard or too soft. Prismacolor colored pencils are not messy and can be blended in together nicely. As you can see in my rendition of the characters of the Wizard of Oz.

French Style Full Box Plein Air Easel

Before I get to all the goodies that is in my studio, I wanted to mention another pice of furniture that holds my canvas substrates at the perfect angle. It's the French Style Full Box Plein Air Easel.
I like this easel the best because of it's mobility and how much it can hold.
When I first set this up in my studio I was surprised how much oil paint, brushes and tupintine I was able to fit in the draw and still fold it back up to bring to my next studio setting.

My Draftsmans Table

I recently just did my first video review for the Studio Designs Futura Craft Station artists draftsman table. I showed an up-close review of the table that I use in my studio. I'm thinking that this will help lots of artists and crafters see what the desk looks like in different angles instead of the generic photo that is shown. I also show an idea of how I also use this desk as a light table.
