I've been using this for a few months, and plan to bring it on my next trip. I took out most of the included paints and used my own. I thought I'd try the W&N reds that came with it, although Holbein has lately been my favorite. I have a whole set of Holbein small tubes, 24!!!) and haven't made the time to try them all!
I'm having trouble deciding, as usual! Basically we have 3 days and 4 nights there, plus 2 days of travel. Do I really need FIVE tee shirts? Oh, and I didn't draw my sketch kit, but that is going in my carry-on.
Here is my newest sketch kit. I have been looking for something very portable, even the small bags seem like I will lose things in them. Many thanks to timoliver1959 for his suggestion to buy an inexpensive pencil kit and adapt it to your specific needs. I can't fit the water bottle and the pencil sharpener and teeny-tiny water container within the 1" width of the case, they just need to be on opposite ends. The entire case is 6"x11"x1", so it is just this and my sketchbook to carry. Now we just need some warmer weather so I am willing to go outside and sketch!
