You will need:
1. Travel watercolor pan set.
4. Water Bottle
6. Paper towel or cloth
9. Camping Chair if no place to sit.
These are the supplies I use myself when I’m out in the woods. I place them all in a backpack with necessary snacks!
Remember to also consider the weather. The better prepared you are for the elements, not only with your painting experience be pleasant, but you will last longer outside. Here are some seasonal items to think about.
Waterproof winter coat
Hats, Gloves, Scarf
Hand and Feet warmers
A hot drink in a thermos
For Spring/Rainy Days:
Waterproof (not water resistant) Raincoat with hood
Another important note: When going out alone ALWAYS text or tell someone where you are planning on going and when you plan on returning. I make it a point to always text my husband before going out. It’s better to be safe.
Get outside and have some fun!!!
