(This follows from my previous email: Traveling and Painting.)
A few readers asked how I go about traveling with wet paintings.
That’s a good question, as oil paint can take a few days to dry to touch.
I only recently started using Guerrilla Painter boxes. These things have made painting on location much easier.
I have two 6×8 boxes that can each hold four small boards back to back. The boxes and the studies from my recent Hamilton Island trip are pictured below:
The rest of my painting travel kit includes:
– New Wave pochade box (without the brush holder as I only use palette knives for this kit).
– Ampersand gessoboards. A sturdy alternative to canvas.
– 2 palette knives.
– Paper towel.
– Oil paints (limited palette).
That’s it. Less is certainly more when it comes to a painting travel kit.
You can find links to the above on my supplies page.
Also, I’m opening the 30-Day Creativity Kickstart for enrollment all year round (no open close periods). You can find more details and sign up here.
