Painting a Day

Updated: Jul 13, 2018

So I have now reduced my travel kit even further and created a mini watercolour pochade! I bought an old tin in my local vintage charity shop and made this…

I managed to fit in 8 watercolour pans, a pencil, rubber, folding brush, a water container, water well and a palette. The plastic bag contains ready-cut pieces of watercolour card and bits of kitchen roll - all tied together with an elastic band.

I’ve set myself a challenge and hope to do a little painting every day. It will be quite tricky with my job but I hope to fit it in on my lunch break or wherever I am on an evening or weekend, when taking the pastels would be just too difficult. The good thing is the tin is so small it can travel anywhere with me, in my handbag or even back pocket…
