Or, a detour into what I carry when I travel....
I have a question even before I read your email. Does one need to be “artistic” to benefit from your sketch classes. I’m not, but I like the idea of sketching what I see when traveling.
Yes, Amy, this is definitely a subject I'm interested in, even when I'm not planning on traveling.
Hi Amy, yes! I am very interested to learn how to pack/what to bring art supplies for travel.
I don’t know if you’ve heard of these folks, but they make beautiful things for “arting”
Wow! Thanks for the great article and links!!!
I am one hundred percent not artistic but also one hundred percent intrigued. Going to pick up some of fhese things and give it a shot! Thanks for the detailed write up.
I will be flying to France in the summer and have been doing my own research into flying with fountain pens. For what it's worth, here is a link I found which echoes most of what I have read suggesting that having pens and vials as full as possible and upright is the way to prevent the ink from burping out.
I have never personally displayed any artistic talent (my skills are elsewhere) but I've decided to make an attempt at my favorite art medium, watercolor. I'm treading by dipping my toe in with a simple inexpensive watercolor kit. But your letter today was real inspiration and I'm ready to try it. Wish me luck!
I never get tired of people showing off their art supplies! Thanks for showing yours and for the links. I was just given a landscape sketchbook made by Handbook Journal Co. via Speedball Art Supplies. Not cheap, but great paper for watercolor and ink. Also, small enough to fit in my bag, but big enough to get a decent drawing on. Thanks for sharing all your travel sketching secrets!
