Some of you have asked what supplies I bring when traveling. Here are my favorites:

Stillman & Birn sketchbooks. I like the Beta series for its ability to hold water really well. You can use pencil, colored pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, even acrylic paint! Amazing sketchbook that holds it all and doesn’t warp the paper!

Winsor & Newton travel watercolor set. There are different styles and prices. Just choose one that works for you. Mine has 14 paint colors and several mixing trays. I love it!

Water brush. This thing is miraculous! You can bring it empty on the plane. Then fill with water when you are ready to paint. Magical! I really like it for pen and ink the best.

Derwent Inktense Pencils. These pencils are awesome. After sketching on your page, you barely touch them with water and they create vibrant, intense color. Very fun for sketching!

Mechanical Pencil, Eraser, Ink Pen, Paper towels. Whatever you have at your house, bring a couple of these.

I hope you have fun shopping for your new travel sketching supplies! If you have any questions, feel free to email me! Happy Sketching!
