Travel Painting – an Ultimate Guide (1-day/3h Workshop) 


 “I am never alone when I have my sketchbook: it is my most loyal companion, a trusty diversion, and my visual memoir.”


Learn how to effectively consolidate your oil painting materials into a complete and compact kit!

In this workshop, we will prepare your sketchbook for on-the-go oil painting, as well as for other dry & wet sketching options. You will learn valuable tips and tricks for how to pack, shop abroad, sketch onsite, and transport wet oil paintings on a convenient, lightweight scale.

We will also tube and label your most essential oil paints for wanderlust alla-prima and urban paint sketching.


Materials List - Please bring these materials with you.

  • Watercolor sketchbook (size of your choice) Examples of what Samantha uses: Hahnemühle watercolor A5 or A6 (dark grey cover) and Global Arts Materials Handbook Travelogue Watercolor book (natural linen cover, red flower = 200g paper, blue flower = 300g paper - I prefer the heavier paper and the blue flower on cover).

  • 2oz plastic jar - preferably leakproof.  Nalgene is a good material to look for (Amazon, Container Store)

  • Gesso brush/primer brush

  • Small (very small) palette knife

  • Your most loved Oils (Including Earth colors (burnt sienna, burnt umber, yellow ochre, etc.)

  • Your favorite sketching materials (pencil, ballpoint pen, pastels, etc.)

  • Short handle paint brushes (one or two)

  • 1/4” or 1/2” drafting tape, painter's tape, artist's tape (low tack) (tape width should be proportional to the size of your sketchbook) 

  • Gloves 

  • Notebook (for taking notes)
