Getting ready for my trip

I want to go as light weight as possible because I am carrying a backpack. I want light weight art supplies so I went online and found a tin paint box about 4.75 X 2.75 inches with two nice pallets and 12 empty half pans.



The I bought a box of Inktense Blocks



 This was just a crazy idea I had to break off 1/2" segments of the Inktense blocks and stick them in the half pans. I will probably be using a permanent ink pen to sketch with and using the Inktense block to add a bit of color sort like a blush to liven the sketches up a bit.


Before the "breaking". By the way, the knife didn't work. Snapping did.


Half inch bits two by two in the half pans.


 Finally I painted a sample card just to see what it would be like to use these. Very vivid inks.

Thanks for reading,
Beth

  2. I'd love to see your new tin. What brand is it? I am such a connaisseur of wc travel boxes. Do you prefer the inktense to regualr watercolor?
    How exciting, preparing for you trip!
