When you have a safe space in which to create, it allows the creative juices to flow more freely. If you donít have the luxury of a dedicated studio (or the budget to rent one), you can still create a studio space at home by following these tips. Creating Your Own Studio at Home (

Do you have an art studio in your home? Or, are you one of those artists that can work anywhere?

I am a Pleine Aire acrylic artist without a 'home studio', my wife and I are full-time RVers. We travel mostly Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern. Now we are in Quartzite AZ for the month of January, but will be rolling I-10 east bound and then up 17 to Wilmington NC. We go to the Triad twice a year to see kids and doctors.
All of what I need fits into a backpack. I only use primary colors and titanium white. I use palette knives and a couple brushes, a water mister and a roll of paper towels. A studio would be nice for big works, but 8 X 10 is about all I can get done in an hour (the sun is always moving and creating a new picture!). I can paint in the RV because acrylic paints have no offensive odors. My paint box has been modified to be an easel and I can hold much larger canvas, but painting outside limits the size I work with.
Maybe you should try Pleine Aire?

I use the guest bedroom. It isn't ideal because I can't paint in oils if we have a visitor coming. I put those away a few days ahead of my daughters visits. I have a breezeway I could use but it's currently between 10 to 40 degrees out there and no insulation. Come spring I will have a studio again.

Just a desk in my room but I'm currently saving to remodel my room to have a more art-inducing ambience.
