Karlyn's Recommended Supply List: For Travel
I only carry a few tubes of watercolor that I use a lot, like Antwerp Blue, Winsor Yellow, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, Permanent Magenta and Cobalt Blue.
Recommended Colors for Palette:
Phthalo Green-Blue Shade*
Quinacridone Burnt Orange*
Permanent Rose or Quinacridone Rose*
I have chosen Arches 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper in a quarter sheet (11”x15”) size for my paintings. I bring enough paper to allow a sheet for each day of painting and then I also cut some paper into a long half-sheet (11” x 30”) and fold it so I have quarter sheet size paper. If I want to, I can unfold this paper and do a long image (panoramic). To carry the paper, I made a portfolio. We can sell you one for $8 + shipping or you/your local frame shop can make these from foam core and tape.
