Here are some soft pastel sketches I did on the beach in Thailand...
We are heading to Thailand!!
If I can blog from abroad, I will, but for now I wanted to show you my travel art kit!
I've chosen to experiment with soft pastels while we travel. I think it'll be much more portable than watercolors or oils, for sure.
It all fits into my old Teen Bible cover:
When I open it, it looks like this:
This tiny kit contains so much...
-set of soft pastels, in two boxes
-wet wipes for quick cleaning
-textured paper cut to 4x6" and 5x7" pieces, in a Ziploc bag
-foamcore board with rubber bands to use as support while drawing
-4x6" photo album with clear plastic sleeves, to hold finished drawings
-5x7" plastic sleeves
-business cards (you never know!)
I can't wait to try some plein air drawing in such a stunning location!
PS - leaving my rings at home - here is my temporary replacement :)
Hoping to get a tan ASAP.
Thanks to the "Painting My World" blog for the traveling pastel idea!
