7 Favorite Art Supplies For On The Go

Juliette Crane

One of my favorite things to do is take my art supplies and sketch outside in the park or at a coffee shop.

But sometimes it’s hard to know just what to take with you.

These are some of my favorite, most portable supplies. I’ll also often add in one of my favorites acrylic inks, a pencil and some of my other most loved supplies too.

Photos (Left to Right, Top to Bottom):
* Neon oil pastels (from Sargent),
* Aquaboard (very light and thin, so they’re easily packable),
* Gluestick
* Bristol paper (fun for sketching and gluing with various supplies),
* Lokta paper (perfect for layering and comes in lovely patterns),
* Graph paper
* Mini watercolor set. (this one is by winsor & newton. i love using the cheap crayola brand too, but this set came with a little collapsible brush… just too cute to pass up and it has the most luscious colors).

Happy painting!

  1. I just went to Africa and brought along H2O's, love them!

  2. Thank you for this – it’s a great list. I’m going to try some of these arts supplies!

  3. I love the colors on the neon oil pastels so I completly understand why they are in your list of favorites. Can I ask what you are using as a hand protector?

    • thanks! i try and use non-toxic paints and supplies. my friend nolween usies one that you rub on and it coats your hands. i haven’t tried it though.

Leave a comment... I would love to hear from you!
