My Art Supplies for the Trip

Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 9:17 PM
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!!!!!!

    This looks like a really smart and elegant set up. Working with good watercolor paper is so much more satisfying than sketchbook paper. And you can always bind your paintings if you want to later. I like your bright illustration of your colors and your list.

    One place you have to visit in London is a little art shop on Gt Russell St, just along from the British Museum. If you've ever seen Harry Potter and the 'Wand Shop' in Diagon Alley, it's the spitting image. It was there a couple of years ago and hopefully hasn't closed down.
    Have a great trip.
