My dear friend Judy Barends (her blog) showed us her basic palette in her blog in the end of August and asked to share ours.
I liked the idea of sharing very much and decided to slightly expand and interpret it. So here today you can see my sketching set and the tools of the trade I usually have in my bag on the days of outdoor sketching (not so many days and not so often as I'd like, though).
Here they are:
1. Sketchbook (Fabriano at a moment, very good for light washes)
2. "White Nights" tube paints in Cotman kit
2.1 Lemon yellow
2.2 Cad Yellow
2.3 Rose Madder
2.4 Cad red
2.5 Cobalt Blue
2.7 Winsor Blue
2.8 Ultramarine Blue
2.9 Cool green
2.10 Warm green
2.11 Yellow ochre
2.12 Burnt sienna
2.15 Cad orange
2.16 Dark violet
2.17 Grass green
3. Pen case
4. Machanical pencil with the box of extra leads.
5. Faber Castell Pitt brush-pen in sepia, water-resistant.
6. Rotring fountain pen (I made it shorted by cutting its long artistic tail)
7. Pentel brush-pen in sepia, water-soluble.
8. Waterbrush with 3 (S, M, L) brushes.
9. 3 clips
10. Kneaded and usual eraser
11. Folding plastic cup, to use as water container.
12. Tablets' container now filled with water-soluble Neocolor sticks (grey, yellow, red, blue, sepia, green) and white wax crayon to preserve whites in my sketches.
13. Water container to moisture paints.
14. Sponge for excessive water on the brush.
I'd love to see your kits, I am sure they are so inspiring.
