Travel Art Supplies

if you were going away
for a couple of weeks....
what art supplies would you take?

This is what i am thinking of putting in a travel kit:

art journal with some pretreated pages (background colors and gesso)
derwent inktense pencils
sketch pencil, eraser and sharpener
Stabilo white ink pen
sharpie white ink pen
permanent black ink pen
a few markers; Copic and Tombow
some choice prismacolor pencils
is there anything i am missing?
look at what came in the mail!

I won a give away by the magically talented artist Jackie Morris!

each card is a treasure
thank you so much Jackie!

  1. Hello Tammie Lee,

    I love the body gesture of the gal in the blue dress...

    the way she turns her glance to the resting horse as if offering her flower.

    tranquility from the blue skies, blue water and the blue mountain.

    very spiritual in nature.


    thank you for that supply list, if I get enough courage together to begin drawing again, I now have a list of supplies you clever girl.

    I am off to work again tonight.
    Just having some coffee and reading the blogs.

    hugs and love Sharon

  2. I love that which you never leave behind: your creative imagination!

  4. Lovely drawing - peaceful, nebulous land with beautiful fairies offering flowers to smiling foals...

  5. very poetic illustration~:)

    looks like you are so prepared Tammie! :)have a happy time traveling!

  6. Horses are a pain to draw (at least I think so...), but yours look awesome!

    I always bring along a sketchbook and a graphite pen, sometimes some coloured pencils and my white gel pen. ^-^
    Have a great trip!
