My Artist Bag
It is hard to have just one!
Artist bags should be hung on the wall by categories and mood.
I wish I could take the entire studio with me on my walks.
Usually I bring with me:
a few pencils,
my sketchbook, which by the way it is NOT watercolor paper, what makes the paper wrinkle a bit but I don’t really care,
a watercolor travel set,
tissue paper and
a camera to capture the little surprises on the way.
I sketch fast, don’t really want to get attained on details, I like to paint the mood, colors and feelings. Realism does not match with my personality anyway.
My passenger’s car seat is my office desk and the city ticket guys already know me!
“Keep moving your are on a NO parking zone, mam!”
“Sorry Sir, but I am drawing this area (show them the sketchbook), any chance to hang out for a bit?!”
I guess art does touch everybody’s heart at some level!
I heard a quote the other day that I’ve been using as a motto: “You should not have to spend a lot of money to make art!”. I believe Alisa Burke said that, not sure.
