Have Brush Will Travel

When I was a kid there was a TV show called " Have Gun -Will Travel" but I have a brush and love to travel so off I go to paint. I love to paint in oils but have started to use watercolors to capture what I see while painting.Painting and drawing while traveling always make the experience more enjoyable. I have decided that from now on I will keep a small Travel painting journal when I travel. I have a small watercolor travel journal that I like because it has a sketchbook page on one side and watercolor paper on the other so I can sketch and make notes then do a small watercolor. If you would like to paint while you travel I suggest:
A travel palette
Travel watercolor brushes
A watercolor sketchbook, I also like watercolor blocks, I prefer Arches 300lb cold pressed paper.
A collapsible watercolor container
A bottles of water
pencils, watercolor pencils, pencil sharpener
Zip lock bags to carry everything in
I also take some paper towels folded up in my bag to wipe excess water from my brush.Living in Michigan all my life I am always surprised at what wonderful things other areas of the United States has to offer.Michigan has is Great Lakes and white sand beaches. I was told that I would be disappointed with the beaches in Texas when I came here.

Galveston Island may not have great stretches of white sandy beaches but when I put my toe into the water it was bath warm . The beach had lines of colorful umbrellas and beach chairs and the children were running in and out of the waves. I could have rented a beach chair and watched the ocean but I wen out on one of the stone storm surge barriers and sat watching the tide come in and the sun set.
