When Wayne Wolfson sent me this image and told me that he is working artist that travels. I had to know more about what went into his personal travel kit which is in essence, a portable studio allowing him to create wherever he goes. (I always struggle with what art supplies to take with me so I usually end up with way more than enough) Per Wayne:
“My main visual mediums are:
- Watercolor (half pans: Sennelier /Schmincke/Windsor Newton)
- Sketching for which I use a variety of mechanical pencils kept in black leather global arts pencil case (old yellow Pental 9MM which is first I ever bought and has been around the world with me, Pental Graph Gear 5, 7 MM and a Kuri Toga 5 MM)
- For notes I use a 3.4×5.5 lined Quattro with a black leather cover and its sibling with the brown leather cover for sketches.
- I use Faber Castel Pencils & Pencil Holders for fast, spontaneous sketches along with a German Brass Bullet Sharpener
- Wash Pencils have become a passion of mine and I use Derwerent Dark Wash Pencils along with water in tiny blue glass bottle whose top contains a built in eye droper as to allow me to do wash pieces out in the field. (Wash pencils??? Must Google… – Stephanie)
- The small Rhodia pad 2.9 x 4.1 is perfect for me (lined paper) as I now no longer feel like me if I go out without at least pen & paper. Its compact size allows me to fit it in my pocket if I do not want to bring my book bag out with me. I have the imitation leather cover too as it gives it an extra solid feel and looks great.
I do not take vacations but travel creating wherever I am and what ever else I am doing, all this allows me to continue that and remain portable.”
