This is a perfect solution to my need to have art materials at the ready, whenever I want to draw or paint. This is my sketching tote. Everything is in here that I might need when working on location, or even here at home, out in the yard or indoors. There are no excuses now! It includes a mixed media sketchbook, a smaller sketchbook with 60 pound drawing paper, and a small canvas covered one with lightweight scratch paper. In addition to that, there is a small journal with lined paper, and a small pad of watercolor postcard sized paper. There is a roll of artists low tack tape, to mask off for borders, a box of water soluble sketching pencils in various colors and neutral tones (Stabilo Aquarellable, and Derwent Drawing Pencils and Wash Pencils), and a watercolor paintbox with a brush. Also included are 3 Tombow brush pens, felt tipped and water soluble, and several Pigma Micron waterproof ink pens in different sizes. Also, a Papermate Flair pen, and a regular ball point pen, 2 water rush pens,a mechanical pencil and stick eraser with refills. A calligraphy pen and a set of Tombow Professional drawing pencils rounds out the contents. Lastly, a pair of small scissors, a 6" ruler and a pencil sharpener. These items will give any serious artist plenty of options while on location or back in the studio. There is nothing worse than giving up when inspiration strikes, because it will take too long to gather the materials you need! I hope to get many years of service out of this tote bag, and lots of sketchbooks filled with drawings and paintings!
