I have finally decided what to take on this trip. I made a small portfolio that doubles as a drawing board, to use for carrying a few sheets of watercolor paper so I can sketch/paint on site. I opted for not taking the larger one I made to save on space. Instead I'll take the rest of my pre-cut watercolor pages in a zip-lock bag. I can buy more paper if I need to.
I am taking 2 sable travel brushes that I just love and 2 niji watercolor brushes which I also love! 2 Faber-Castell PITT artist pens and my water soluble Derwent graphite sticks. I also tucked in a small elephant sponge.
Now for the watercolours! I decided it was more important to take all the colours I love rather than work from my smaller Winsor & Newton palette that holds 12, 1/2 pans. I just have more variety with the colours in my Schminike palette that I filled myself. That's it! I'm hoping to visit a few art stores in London, Florence and Paris where I might see something I just have to have!!!!!!
