Watercolor Travel Kit- Which Art Supplies Did I Take??

Published on Apr 26, 2019 3,042 views

In this video I'm sharing the art supplies I took on my recent vacation. I paint in my studio 99% of the time, and while on vacation I painted indoors and not in the field.

There are many great videos here on YouTube with recommendations on travel kits by more experienced on-the-go and plein air painters, so make sure you check them out before assembling your own travel kit!

  • Sheilla Allen
    Sheilla Allen 2 months ago (edited) I have no idea how those pallets made it into manufacturing for Daniel Smith. They are so useless. I love the idea of the swatches on the opening page of the journal. So going to do that on my next journal!
  • Irit Landgraf
    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago Right?!?! It's amazing they went ahead with that... You should absolutely do the palette on the opening page, I'm hooked!

D.S. and Schmincke. Also your journal cover is a must have on any trip it’s beautiful to look at. Thanks for sharing Jill

    Moira OReilly 2 months ago Oh what fun! I have never tried to paint outside of my craft space! But, that lovely Altenew palette is calling my name LOL :)
  • Irit Landgraf
    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago Haha, yes, I am way too intimidated and self concious to paint in a public place, but my bedroom or hotel room was the perfect space on this trip! That palette is great! And for that price?!

    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago T Bea I'll try to make another video soon, but it's mostly Daniel Smith ultimate mixing set, the 2 new paints I mention, and some of my brighter colors, which are shown in this video -
  • Honey Bee
    Honey Bee 2 months ago What brush is the one in the middle -the fluffy one plse?
  • Irit Landgraf
    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago Haha, most people only need a handful, myself included, but it's nice to try a variety of shapes and styles.
  • Honey Bee
    Honey Bee 2 months ago Wow ...that's quite a lot of brushes- thank you for sharing your knowledge. XO @Irit Landgraf
  • Irit Landgraf
    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago No problem! I like it a lot, and for natural hair brush the price is really good, as are all of Jackson's own brushes. I haven't talked a lot about brushes actually. I have a few go to ones, I love the Escoda Perla round brushes, Princeton Neptune are beautiful too. I have been getting a lot of use from my Paul Rubens brush set (I linked to it here in this video in the info section). Escoda Versatil rigger is another great one... It really depends on what kind of style you have, if you need your brush to hold a lot of water or not... Detail work, how much snap and control you want. I've tried a lot and at the end of the day I use just a handful from the many I own :)
  • Honey Bee
    Honey Bee 2 months ago My apologies- I did not look! How do you rate it? have you done any brush comparison videos Irit? XO
  • Irit Landgraf

  • Madeline Zukowski
    Madeline Zukowski 2 months ago Yet, another wonderful video! I I am wondering the name & brand of the neon yellow paint you have in your travel pallet, third row, second from the left??? I have watched all of your watercolor pallet videos and have purchased many of my colors based off of your recommendations, so thank you for having such lovely taste in colors!
  • Irit Landgraf
    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago Thanks so much Madeline! Glad you enjoyed! I am pretty sure it's Shinhan Pass hybrid paint in lemon yellow, neon indeed!
    INTUITIVE & INSPIRED ART 2 months ago (edited) I have two of those worthless Daniel Smith boxes. I'm wondering if we take the lid off, then we can lay it flat and use it as a palette. Afterwards, we can set the lid back on, then keep in on with a rubber band or something. A fancy colorful band of course. What do you think of that idea Irit?
  • Irit Landgraf
    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago YESSSS rainbow will make everything better!
    INTUITIVE & INSPIRED ART 2 months ago (edited) @Irit Landgraf I LIKE the box, just not it's lack of functionality. As a two-piece unit it works. : ) Now I just need a rainbow rubber band.
  • Irit Landgraf
    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago Lol I admire your persistence. I think I will just dump them!
  • Darlene Love
    Darlene Love 2 months ago Please do not purchase from Jackson's Art. They have stolen almost $400 from me. I returned a Schminke 48 full pan set in a wooden box still in its plastic wrap in perfect unused condition. They refuse to refund me for this return even though they admit they received this item at their warehouse over 2 months ago. Please please please do not shop here unless you like being scammed.
  • Irit Landgraf
    Irit Landgraf 2 months ago Oh no, so sorry to hear you've had a bad experience! Personally I have ordered mulitple times and never had any issues... I'm really sorry to hear that happened to you!
