The drawing table or drafting table as it is commonly called, is one of the most important pieces of equipment that an artist who draws can have. I have an excellent table in my studio in Tasmania, but couldn’t bring it with me. I must admit, I was missing my table, terribly!

Thanks to Cairns artist and architect, Mike Ferris, I now have a table (pictured). What joy! Mike has very kindly loaned me one of his tables and I am extremely grateful. I don’t have a studio at our Trinity Beach apartment, so the second bedroom is the table’s location.

Tables such as these are necessary because they ‘sit’ your work at the right angle, so there is no need to lean over and damage your back. Coupled with a good chair, I now have the right conditions to work in.

I have already ‘christened’ the table by completing my second drawing since I arrived in Cairns.

Wednesday: Trinity Beach Still Life.

    I like the table, and I love the painting displayed on it, even if it’s not shown on purpose. I loved your Easter geometry, too. Thank you for the comment on my father. I’ll keep following your work!
