I like to read blogs and watch videos about what art supplies that artists like to take with them on the go. So, I thought I would throw in my two cents and show you what I bring with me on road trips. Even if I am driving, I still like to bring these items with me because you will never know when the mood will strike to create something. I will admit that this isn’t too exciting, but for now it is everything that I need or want to bring…minus the snacks of course 🙂
I still have a love/hate relationship with watercolor at the moment but I am hardheaded so of course I have a few supplies to curse at while I’m on a trip.
Strathmore Watercolor Pad
Winsor & Newton-12 half pan travel set
My first love….Drawing….can’t forget that!
Casemate Sketch Diary-

Faber Castell Typewriter Eraser
Pen Mate Duo Expert Lead Pencil
Kol-I-Noor – 24 Color Woodless Pencils – (Artist quality pencils are too fragile for me to bring along. They would probably be okay but I don’t want to risk it.)
Years ago I use to be into calligraphy. Modern and Brush Calligraphy has really caught my eye….So, have been playing around with that as well. I may want to Zentangle too.

Speedball Calligraphy Set
Tom Bow Brush Pen – hard

Not pictured that I will usually bring is:
*travel pencil sharpener
*a couple of paper towels
And I can’t forget my kindle and a bit of knitting.
It seems like a lot of projects to bring a long and I may not touch a bit of it but it is there if the inclination hits me. Its better to have it and not want it than to want it and not have it, lol
So what do you bring along with you on trips? What are your must haves?
Be Well and Happy!
