French Travel Sketches

I've traveled a good deal about the world.  I usually like to have something with me to do an occasional watercolor or drawing.  Most times I carry my watercolor box in my shirt pocket and a small 6" x 9" sketchbook of good quality watercolor paper.   If I know that I will have more than 20 minutes I will bring my briefcase size kit.  In this I can carry a full-size John Pike watercolor palette, a 9"(or 10") x 12" sketchbook, a flat plastic container of brushes, pencils, erasers, a small bottle of water and extra paint.  I carry a collapsible pot for water and a long string.  The string is for tying to the pot so I can retrive the water in the canal or stream without climbing down the bank.  My emergency liquid is white wine in case there's no water (I'm really hurting if I don't have any white or red wine, I then might have to stop painting). 

When sketching outdoors it is a good idea to have sunscreen, a good "cool" hat and sun glasses.
