This thread is so much fun.

Seeing artists in their studios seems like sneaking a glance in while passing - keep 'em coming!

Oooh I would love to have overhead natural lighting like that in my little studio. But honestly, if I had that much room, I'd just have more horses... lol.

From one extreme to the other. Now Lucian Freud's. Day studio and night studio all in the same house. Lucian had a number of mysterious unexplained studio fires in his life. Note the paint rags.

Francis Bacon's London studio. Someone gave him a bigger one than this, but it had a large tree over the sky lights and he said when the wind blew it was like trying to paint underwater.
I'm a little messy, but this is too much for even me. As my great aunt said, "It takes all folks."

Howard Hodgkin's is my favorite so far. Except it was a repurposed dairy so he probably had to drive there. I like the fact of just being able to walk in and start at a moments notice.
