Packing for Singapore: what’s in my sketchbag?

Here’s what’s traveling to Singapore where I’m teaching a workshop at the Urban Sketchers Symposium.

My compact Winsor and Newton paint box, refilled with a mix of tube colors. . The tubes come along for when I need to refill my colors ( every couple of days for the ones I use the most).

A sunhat, a pencil and pen case, an Escoda Reserva Kolinsky travel brush and Stillman & Birn Beta sketchbooks. 4 of them because I’m always worried I’ll run out!


In the pencil case,( left to right):
Graphite pencils , white pastel pencil, white gel pen, piece of a water-soluble white crayon, yellow Lamy Safari pen, blue pastel pencil, 2 waterbrushes with diluted brown and diluted blue DeAtramentis Document ink ( these are a new addition), Sharpie, Pentel brush pen, Kuretake brush pen and 2 Sailor bent nib pens ( my favorite pens just now: this green one and this blue one.).


Not shown, but coming along too: water containers, a folding stool, a set of brushes, deAtramentis and Carbon Black inks, a syringe to refill my pens and my notes and handouts for my workshop.

And just like I posted a downloadable pdf  of of my workshop handouts last year, I promise to post one from this year’s workshop when I’m back.

Until then, happy sketching, and I’ll report back from Singapore soon!
