What's in my art travel kit?

Ever wonder what's in my art travel kit? *winks* It's everything I can fit into my Kipling pouch + an art journal. If it's a long flight, they come with me on the plane. Otherwise, I just pack them in my checked-in luggage.

I do switch it up a bit depending on what's my latest "craze".
These days, it's drawing and painting faces. :)

1. A5 art journal

The pages are prepped with gesso and some pages have simple backgrounds done with mists and masks.

2. Faber Castell Gelatos

These are my faves because of their versatility. They can be used as a wet or dry medium. And you can use your fingers or a brush.

3. Prismacolor pencils + sharpener + eraser

I use the pencils for drawing. They are super blendable. And when you work with them on top of an acrylic painted surface, the marks can be erased!

4. Montana and Posca paint markers + Sakura white gelly roll pen + Faber Castell PITT pen

The Montana and Posca paint markers are filled with thin acrylic paints that are opaque and perfect for colouring in faces. The Montana ones are refillable. Both are made in Japan.

The Sakura gelly roll pen and Faber Castell PITT pens are for journaling.

5. Holbein watercolours

I recently bought this travel metal tin box and filled it up with 12 yummy Holbein watercolours in half pans. Next on my list are Schmincke watercolours.

6. Water brushes + spritzer

Acrylics are very hard on brushes so I bring two water brushes with one especially for watercolour. The spritzer is for diluting the colorants and washing my brushes.

There you have it. What's in my art travel kit.  What about you? What are your essentials when you travel?

P/s: I'm currently exploring my digital options so that if I really need to travel light, I can just bring a tablet with me.

I don't really do much when travelling - which is only when I'm on holidays....but I take lots of photos to scrap!!! I do, however, always take a diary to fill in. More a writer than drawer when traveling :)
