Road Trip

by sandihester

Grady and I just got back from a road trip.  We went down to Georgia to visit some of his family.  Since I started painting, long road trips go much faster.  I love that about watercolor painting – you can take it just about anywhere!  Any long trip in the car or air plane I take my paints – time seems to fly by when I’m painting for some reason.  I thought I would share some of my sketches I do on these road trips and my travel painting supplies with you.  My travel supply kit includes my sketch books (the one below is the largest I carry), small travel size paint box (I LOVE this paint box – Grady got it for me for my birthday), I usually only carry 1 or 2 brushes, pencil, my favorite eraser (Artgum), spray bottle, water – of course, and I have this great lap desk that I use in the car – it has a place for a small cup.  I love looking at other people’s art supplies so I thought I would take a picture of my “travel” supplies before I put them away from our trip.  The first 2 sketches I did on this trip.
