What's Inside?

In a couple weeks I will be painting in Italy.  My last post was about my new cool pencil bag.

It is a perfect size for holding just about everything I need to do some paintings-on-the-go in my watercolor travel journal.  Now I want to show you what I put inside it.  I have three miniature palettes and a set of travel brushes that are great for traveling.  I like these mini palettes because they each hold 12 colors and have removable 1/2 pans.  That means that I can put whatever colors I desire in on my palette.  If I find I no longer and using a certain color, then I can easily switch it out for another color.

The brushes are from Jackson's Art Supplies.  It is hard to find good travel brushes and this is a great set!  If you just order brushes you will get free shipping.

A Great Idea!

I got this nice pencil case from  It's large enough to put a ton of pens in.  It also holds 2 of my mini palettes and my set of traveling watercolor brushes. There are three pockets and it comes in lots of fun colors. It is definitely going to Italy will me for my Colors of Umbria workshop.  It will be perfect for painting in the town.
