I put together a collection of some of the art supplies sitting on my desk. I usually use a Sakura Koi travel watercolor set for my sketches (Daniel Smith for in the studio), but I recently picked up this Windsor and Newton Cotman set. My first time using it was for this sketch so I could get the colors on the palette right! I like the compact nature of it, and I know it’s widely used for urban sketching, but I just can’t get away from the ease of the larger Sakura set – I’m too lazy to mix so many colors on location! I’m sure I’ll find a travel purpose for the Windsor and Newton set eventually.
