So lately I have been finding a little extra time during parts of my day that I probably shouldn't have, but it's always (and I mean always) when I'm out of the studio. It's been a little frustrating, because I have sooooo many pet projects that I'd like to get into more, or items that I would like to experiment with, but I can't because my time in the studio is spent working on paid freelance projects.
With all this extra time I've been finding myself with (it's intermittent btw) I decided to see just what portable art supplies I could easily carry with me in a messenger bag that wouldn't be too heavy or cumbersome in my situation. Turns out that a portable watercolor set from Winsor & Newton that I had purchased for my study abroad in Rome was a perfect candidate! I have been itching to get into watercolors again, so this has been perfect!!!! To accompany my watercolors, I've added my Prismacolor Color & Watercolor pencils, and a set of Derwent Inktense Color Pencils. All supplies that I've had in my studio for years, with all of the intents and purposes to break them out to play with them, and to branch out into colored art that wasn't digital.
And I'm even doing them outside when I'm out in the pasture with my horsey!
