After 5 1/2 fabulous weeks in Spain & Europe, we are home again. What sights and tastes! Art & architecture in abundance……..and sunny and warm the whole time!

I set myself the lovely task of sketching as much of our trip as possible (see Sketches folder) and so made up a little travel kit.

2019 Travel kit items
  • A 15cm square book of Khadi paper (Cotton paper) for pen and wash sketches
  • A small spiral notebook 10cm x 15cm just for pen work. (which I carried everywhere)
  • A small watercolour palette (which I crammed with colours before I left)
  • A paper towel
  • An aqua brush (med)
  • A small mop brush
  • Artline black finepoint pens – 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8
  • Sharpie ‘Stained’ brush pen (not waterproof)
  • 3 x pencils: HB, 2B, 4B
  • Eraser & pencil sharpener
  • Blue Artline pen 0.4 (Loved this nib an used this lots with small notebook)

I put all of this (except the spiral book and blue pen) into a very OLD Qantas onboard toiletries kit………… I always knew it was too good to throw away!!

Finally useful & it zips up!
