Vacationing artists are different than any other person traveling. Why, you ask? We start out by packing some materials\supplies in case we can sneak in a sketch or two. In my case, I pack a small watercolor pad and a traveling case. The colors are limited, but enough to fill the desire. In addition to that, we make sure our cameras are fully charged with additional disks in case we go a little crazy with the photos. I find that many artists are also photographers because they are always looking for things that they may want to paint one day….even if they never do; a little inspiration seeking.
To top it off, we try to find a museum or gallery to visit because art makes the day complete. In my case, I did all of the above. Don’t be surprised to find a new series fueled my recent inspirations.
If you are an artist, please share how you prepare and enjoy your vacations!
