Something Blue






Something blue for Everyday Matters.  I thought about this for a while...what could I choose to sketch that's blue....  the sky, the sea?  Yes the ideas weren't coming thick and fast, but then I looked up and spied my little sketching bag.  The one I grab on my way out...just in case!
This little bag is only 8" wide and 10" long but holds everything I might want to use while out sketching.  It has several pockets and zips all the way round making it easy to get into and I got it free from a travel company, which makes it even nicer.

I unpacked the bag to show you what I carry around with me



Two small sketchbooks, various pens and pencils, a waterbrush, my small set of Maimeri watercolours and it's extra little mixing palette, paper towels, a homemade viewfinder and a water container.  Plus I can get in insect repellant and a small camera comfortably.  A very useful little bag indeed!

A very useful bag indeed - I have something similar in green for my camera.

That's a really nice looking bag! I probably have something similar but different color. =) Mine is olive green.
Love the drawing!

I love this! The sketch is great. And I always am interested in seeing other artist's creative materials, especially watercolor palettes. I am thinking of making one from an Altoid tin. I think they are wonderful. When I do, I'll post it on my blog http://faypaints.blogspot.com.
Happy day!

Looks like a great bag! And thanks for showing your supplies...I always love to see that. I don't see in 'magic dust' or anything that you use to make your paintings so much better? I thought for sure you had something like that hidden in there!

Love your drawing and the fact you are set to go paint and sketch any time you like. I am going to make me a 'Kit' to have at the ready.
