I spent last week on holiday in Ireland. We stayed on the Mullet Peninsula in County Mayo, which is on the west coast of Ireland. It was very quiet and ideal for ‘getting away from it all’ – a total contrast from our daily lives in central London.
I took a pocket-sized Moleskine sketchbook which is perfect for travelling with because of its size. Along with that I used a couple of Micron pens (one in black and one in brown, both 05) and my new travel watercolour set from Cass Art, which, again is ideal for carrying around because it’s similar in size to my mobile phone but still contains 18 quarter pans of professional grade watercolours.
I did take a larger, A4 Moleskine with me too, so that I could catch up on my sketches for the SketchingNow Buildings Course that I’m doing but I’ll save that sketch for another day.
I got home yesterday and I’m now taking part in Inktober again this month. Again, I’ll share more about that in a later post.
Let me know in the comments below if you sketch when you travel, and if you do, what’s in your travel sketching kit?
