For a long time I had looked for a travel setup for my gouache. Now, I have found it.
Above is a picture of one of my fun dinosaur sketches I did at a restaurant with my friend Laura.
This is a picture of my travel gouache kit.
- A collapsible water cup
- Ceramic palette
- Small tin to store paint
- my favorite paintbrushes
I usually don’t bring many tubes of paint with me. I like to work in a limited palette when I’m out. The limited palette adds a challenge and breaks me out of old habits. Typically I use white, black and one of each of the primaries.
This is a picture of my first travel painting. I went to Starbucks one evening and painted a picture of one of my clients building (we will come back to that in a later post). The test went well, so well I have taken it with me a lot to coffee shops to warm up before I do work in my studio or when I hang out with other artists.
This last sketch is from a sketch trip with Bea. We went to a coffee shop (that wasn’t Starbucks) and painted people…who kept moving while I was trying to paint so I had to paint quick.
I have more of these to share … But those will be on a later post.
