100309 The full kit?

The other half of my stuff… already thinking of making some adjsutments…
Not shown is ny travelling ink pot!

ALso in response to flickr questions….
100309 My current paint tin
As much as I love drawing it… sometimes photos tell the story better (though you can’t quite see the blu-tack holding the pans in place.) Thanks to Fred’s scrachings for the idea to remove the clips and add more colours!

I like to keep my palettes as clean as possible and try to mix the various colours in the same place all the time (when I was travelling I actually mixed a tiny bit of colour in each spot after I had cleaned it so that I worked more consistently – dont need to do that these days – it is a habit now)
100309 Colours_ but might change

One thing for certain whenever I post something like this I also shortly after make a change….


  • Wonderful post and sketch! i love seeing what tools other people consider essential and how they tote them about. I started going back through your posts to see how you put your kit together and was captured by the Bible verses included in each sketch. I ended up wandering through the lot- what wonderful sketches and such a lovely expression of faith!!

    Yes, I know it sounds crazy…I had the W&N kit first and then bought an empty Schminke tin to put some Daniel Smith paints in. I then realised the the Schminke tin is better than the W&N one as it has three mixing compartments in the top lid. Never tried Schminke paints but I hear good things about them.

  • Winsor and Newton in a schminke tin – well I never!

  • I always like to see how other artists draw or paint their materials or process!
    The Schminke paints are wonderful and the tin shown here is very good quality. I have a smaller schminke tin with good size wells, a little less bulky to throw in a purse or small bag. Just hard to find the schminke half pans to replace favorite colors – does anyone know where to get them? I used to get them in a Pearl Paint Store in New Jersey, but they no longer carry them.
