Getting ready for the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Manchester, my goal is to try to travel light and reduce the amount of sketching gear I take. Everything I need for sketching now fits in my purse.
I purchased the Pocket Art Toolkit by Expeditionary Art.com .
The business card holder sized palettes fit in the kit. I have 28 colors in the wells and 3 pocket palettes. It takes some getting use to working with the smaller sized palette but I think I can get use to it. All my travel brushes fit in a side pocket under the pens. I added velcro strips to secure the side pocket and keep the brushes from coming out.
Today was the test day. The pocket palettes surprisingly carry quite a bit of paint. I will have to add more to it as the paint sinks into the palette leaving room in each well for more paint as it dries.
I am always nervous trying out something new like this. It sometimes throws me off using a new palette. With my old larger palette I know exactly where each color is.
