I’ve assembled a art box to simplify travel painting
The box contains a paper holder that flattens into a painting desk, a limited amount of travel size pens, brushes, pencil sharpener, light weight palette and paints.
Having light weight painting materials makes a big difference when you are carrying around your materials often. Even the weight of the wooden box had to be lightened. I was forced to abandon my favorite cigar box that is an excellent size because it was too heavy.
To start putting together your own box, lay out all the materials you are thinking you need. Then start looking for duplicates, the lightest items and what you don’t really need.
Let me know how it goes. If you like watching You Tube videos, check out “Follow the White Rabbit, the artist makes a lot of helpful tools and videos!
