Here is a list of the ink drawing supplies that I take with me when I travel. I don’t always get to bring them all. I also have a great watercolor kit as well.
1. Pen and Ink (duh!!)
2. Kneaded erasers are the best I sometimes use them to lighten up (just a little) washes or to create the appearance of an extra wash. I also use it to clean up any pencil marks I may have left behind (although I tend to leave pencil marks)
3. Watercolor Paper or sometimes drawing paper
4. A brush for large spaces with a rounded tip – These brushes hold a large amount of water making it easier to wet a larger area
5. A brush with a straight flat tip – great for straight lines
6. A second brush with a slanted tip – great for curved lines
7. I use more water for the washes than I do ink
8. Misket, Frisket or other masking fluid – I’m still mastering this one. I use it for small spaces that I want to keep white.
9. Sketchbook and sketches – I have been creating a large amount of composition sketches lately. It is nice because if I don’t have a subject to draw I can just create a composition and work on technique or a specific element/principle of art (ex. Maybe I would focus on unity and variety)
10. Waterbrush – I use this guy more when I am traveling and don’t take much else…for example, backpacking or in a car.
11. A variety of pen tips – I don’t use these much but I do every now and then for lettering
12. Paper towel – This may be one of the most versatile tools that I use
13. Watercolors – I have not mixed the two for quite some time, but I do have some quick flower sketches that utilize watercolor
