As I’ve mentioned before, I work as a Web Designer and therefore find it hard to find time for my watercolours. I try my best to paint each lunchtime, it’s not a bad time format, 30 – 45 minutes means I have to keep it simple. I tend to produce my best work when I have limited time to complete it.
I am able to raise my desk to a comfortable standing position, my two computer screens hide my easel nicely from passing workmates, the light on the left is a daylight lamp, on the right I have a paper cup for water, a sponge, Winsor &Newton whole pans and travel brushes. I don’t advertise to my workmates what I do during my lunchtime (but I do use a hair dryer!), of course anything that is a little odd in an office is news and therefore knowledge of my activities has surely spread.

When you need painting it is clear you´ll find place and time, and seeing the results it deserves the risks
Thanks setxu! Yes, I guess the secret is having passion. That, and creating routines.
