plein air watercolor toolbox



This is the small plastic box I use to hold the tools and materials for plain air watercolor painting. It’s 4.75″x6.75″x1.25″ and fits conveniently in a small messanger bag that holds the watercolor paper blocks and paint pallet.


The box holds: (top row, left to right) drafting pen for applying resist; ¬†graphite pencils for initial drawing; assorted brushes, rounds in # 1, 3, and 5, and flats in 1/4″ and 1/2″; watercolor pencils for adding detail and texture; (bottom row, left to right) clamps for holding pallet to support; pencil sharpener; erasures; and white gouache.
