💭permanent black Sharpie
💭White Uniball signo pen
💭non permanent black marker (to paint over with water and let the black bleed out a bit)
💭tiny spray bottle of water (I spray the paint to help activate it before painting, and I use it to clean my brush as I go) this is a new one, mine usually looks pretty dirty
💭leather journal from redwoodwillow (I have also gotten an even smaller version from Amazon)
💭Altoid tin filled with:
💜half pans from imlothmelui that are handcrafted and came with a magnet affixed to the back so they stay putimlothwatercolor
💜half pans from redwoodwillow that did not come with magnets attached so they are held in with sticky tac
💜 a small pencil with an eraser
💜 a small brush (I broke it then sharpened the end till it was small enough to fit. I use the sharp end to scratch into wet watercolor for an interesting effect)
💜 a folded up paper napkin to wipe my brush on
This all fits because the only other things I carry are cash, cards, stamps, BurtsBees chapstick, Mr. Rogers "encouragemints", hair band, pen, comb and a pocket talisman or two.
Here's some pages I haven't shared before ....
Then when I know I will have time to paint I carry a bigger bag that will fit the following extras:
💭strathmore visual journal
💭Jane Davenport bright watercolor set
💭a bigger brush
