Plein Air Painting in Autumn

Back in April I took advantage of one of the last sunny days of the month to go plein air painting.

It was the first time I tried out my mini portable art kit which you will see in the video. My kit that day included the following items:

Nomadic case:

  • Kuretake Zig watercolour brush
  • Derwent Graphik Marker 0.8 in black
  • pencil extender
  • Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolours
  • paper towels

Mint Tin:

  • Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencil - Light Phthalo Blue
  • Luxor Mini Permanent Marker
  • Victorinox Tomo for sharpening pencils

The last few months have been extremely busy, so I didn't get around to posting this update at the end of March. I am hoping to catch up with blog posts over the next month, as I have quite a few finished projects and Vlogs to share!


Happy New Year!

My routine is now back to normal after moving! As we are coming into summer here in New Zealand I am making an effort to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.

Blog updates have been on hold as we are currently moving house. However everything should be back to normal by October. This means that a lot of my art supplies have been packed away but I have kept out basic drawing and painting tools as well as my sculpting tools.
