A sketch of my sketching kit

Pen & watercolour ~ A5
Some of which I have had since I was eighteen, so they are old friends!

In my A4 zipped bag:

I have two sketchbooks of different weight papers.
A field watercolour set,
Large fold away brush (Round, about size 5) and a small brush (Round, about size 1),
Pencil,
Putty rubber,
Sharpener of some sort – usually a scalpel​. With the blade taped to the side of the handle. So that it doesn’t cut anything until it is needed,
Sketching pen,
Biro,
Bottle of black ink,
Clothes peg for holding down the page of the sketchbook when it’s windy,
A piece of old Karrimat to sit on.

This has been with me on all sorts of adventures but still holds up well.
