When I fly, I bring watercolor crayons with me and have a blast painting on the plane. It’s a good exercise learning to pare down on your supplies and focus on making art with the few things you have. This holiday period, we went on a road trip and I usually knit as that seems to be the only thing I can do while being trapped in a car (I hate road trips). BUT this time, I found a new trick! I could draw with charcoal pencils in the car!! Okay, I don’t think it’s the best work but it sure is fun, being loose and free, chatting with my husband while he drives and he can actually watch me draw during the trip! I have a ways to learn re charcoal drawing. Glad I found a new way to enjoy the much hated road trip!!! Do any of you do that? Sketch in the car?

I love to take art supplies and artsy books along on vacations. For me it is like a mini vacation inside the vacation! 🙂
Me too! I spend more time packing my art supplies than my clothes!:)
