1.) 5 sheets of 20 x 30 Arches paper. It can be a bit expensive, but I usually cut each piece down into a few smaller pieces which offsets the price a bit.
2.) Tube-folio. I picked one that would fit inside my backpack, after a horrid experience leaving one behind in Berlin (FULL of work...)
3.) Fredrix watercolor canvas sheets. These are so much fun. 9 x 12, great for accepting watercolors, liquid acrylics, all sorts of watermedia. Nice and travel sized too.
4.) Golden liquids; white and indigo. If I'm packing only carry-on as we sometimes do, I'll find an artstore in the vicinity of where we are staying that carries these. They are integral to my work and if I can't fly with them, I'll get them on location.
5.) Daniel Smith Gouache; white and naples yellow. These tubes go everywhere with me.
6.) Golden fluid; bone black and paynes gray. Small enough that I can bring these in my carry-on.
7.) Strathmore Watercolor sketchbook.
8.) Old paint towel.
9.) Fredrix Nature Core canvas boards. These things are awesome. Paints like a canvas, but lighter and a bit more durable in transport.
11.) Assorted Brushes.
13.) Daniel Smith Watercolor sticks. I'll paint directly from the sticks, or chop off a bit and dissolve it in water for a nice wash. In their dry state they don't harm the carry-on rule either :)
14.) Instax camera. I use this to see things a bit differently sometimes. Finished pieces, landscapes, people... the film changes an image in a way that affects how I process it. I also like to have physical pictures from our travels :)
What about you? Anything you can't leave behind? It would be fun to make some sort of masterlist, with a ton of artist contributors!
I'll check back in when we arrive in Copenhagen! On to Adventure!
