People attending my fine art opening at Burnt Bridge Cellars have told me that they enjoyed seeing my free ebook sketchbook as part of my exhibit and several have asked me: “What does your sketching kit look like?”
Here’s a picture of it.
The bag is new to me recently – but this is the contents of my “running around loose” sketching kit: a mechanical pencil, an eraser, ink pens, a small watercolor set, color pencils and my bound sketchbook. The sketchbook is 5 x 3 inches. My new bag measures 9 inches by 7 inches and about 3.5 inches deep. My old bag was bigger but had the same contents as above plus half the library and the kitchen sink. This new smaller bag weighs much less because the only “extra” thing I add to it is my sunglasses.
I call this my “running around loose” kit – because I take it along with me wherever I go and make 5 minute or less drawings with it. This name also distinguishes it from my studio sketchbook – which is a different breed ….
