As I find it very inconvenient to fill up pans while I’m travelling (Daniel Smith paint takes days to dry) I have to make a guess as to how much paint I need and prepare extra pans. This is the collection this year.
In 2016 I was away for 8 weeks and this is the collection I took. Sadly I can’t find an record of how much paint I had left on my return. (Hmm. This doesn’t look much different from this year’s amount, however I do remember running out of Potters Pink and Sap Green in recent trips.)
I did however, record my palette at the end of 2017 Trip No. 2 (there were four trips last year). This really shows how much paint I used – super helpful, hey? So I just have to make sure that I have 2.5x this amount.
Will this be enough? I think so.
I’m more concerned about my sketchbook strategy – my guess is 8 x A4 moleskine and I will have to ship some home. But I still need to work out this in detail.
