On the Road with Gouache

I recently made a driving trip, crossing from Texas to Alabama on I-10 with my husband at the wheel. I devised a tiny palette from an Altoids tin and purchased a waterbrush so I could pass the time painting.

Above you can see how I clipped it to my Moleskine sketchpad with a faux chamois (Shamwow, I think) cloth, and my waterbrush in the foreground. The whole kit, including the gouache paint tubes to refill my palette, fit into a pint bag.

Below are some of the paintings done on the road or sitting on beaches.
