Minimal Travel Kit

I’m putting together an absolutely minimal plein air kit for traveling. It is based on the Winsor Newton Professional Watercolor Compact Set, a small 4″ x 5″ case with 14 half-pans of watercolor, a nine section palette, a water cup, and a small sable brush.

To this I added a pair of Black Gold pull apart travel brushes and a 5″ x 7″ block of Fabriano Acquarello cold pressed watercolor paper. I’ll probably also need a water bottle, paper towels, pencils, and an eraser.

Here’s a close up showing the colors included in the set. Can’t wait to try it out!
