A Place to Work
Now you need a place to lay your supplies and go about the business of drawing. A full-size drawing table provides a firm, steady surface and enough room to rest your arms s you draw. The table angles so that your drawing paper is parallel to your eyes, which minimizes the chance for visual distortion as you work.
Your pencils, erasers, sharpeners and other tools should be arranged in an uncluttered fashion and made easily accessible for drawing. It helps put you quickly in the mood to draw if you can leave your art materials set up in a designated area. I have a studio where I keep my table, along with a taboret (or art-supply caddy), pencil tray and a light. Rick, of course, has two drawing tables, and they’re bigger than mine. It’s one of those things I have learned to live with.
If you have limited space or want to carry your studio with you, consider a portable drawing table. I have a dandy one that has a handle for easy transport and whose angle is somewhat adjustable (though not as much as a larger drawing table). Homemade drawing surfaces work just as well, as long as they are firm and steady. Use a clipboard or a piece of smooth material such as Masonite or plywood with the addition of bulldog clips or drafting tape to hold your work in place.
