My sketching and painting kit

This is even more than I really need for a day of sketching. I’ll lighten my ‘load’ before I go out for the day of sketching and painting in Tuscany and surrounding areas. Three palettes may be a bit too much even though they are quite small and cute!

Handmade Sketchbooks are ready!

I made 2 sketchbooks for this trip. They are filled with hot pressed 90lb watercolor paper and some other kinds of papers good for drawing with ink.  My goal is to fill one a week. I already started one when we all got together to practice drawing on location.  The third one (on the bottom) is for Bulgaria. After the workshops we will continue on to see our daughter, Patrice and James there. I started this sketchbook during our last visit. Can’t wait to start filling these!

My brushes and pens are packed for Tuscany!

I am gradually getting my supplies together. Here are my brushes and pens. I have a few more things to add but not much. I know I said I’d show you my sketchbooks next but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow!

Tuscany, here I come!

Once again it is time for me to teach a workshop in Tuscany! I have prepared my mini palettes. They’re filled and drying out for travel. Have I ever told you I have a mini palette addiction? This should be plenty for the two week workshop! I’ll show you my sketchbooks next.
