When I was getting ready for a trip to NYC, I tried to thin down my art supplies to the smallest amount that could still give me lots of art fun.
I discovered that I can take a Stabilo MarksAll black pencil ( the numbers on the side are 8046) and one of the little brushes that you fill the barrel with water and I am good to go.
Here are a few quick sketches done with these supplies.
I used sketchbook paper, very lightweight , but still it stood up to the water that was needed to make the Stabilo reactivate in a watery fashion. Would be even better on watercolor paper.
I had a few colored pencils for added color pop. Prismacolor pencils, my favorite.
Perfect amount of small supplies for an airplane or a trip to the park.
