Susan and I painted our studio walls a kind of medium gray-green (Benjamin Moore #1490).

You can see the gym mat that I stand on while painting (I bought it used from the YMCA when they were getting new ones). My easel is a Hughes, counterbalanced one, bought from Wind River Arts. The black portion of the wall is where I hang
