I recently returned from a wonderful trip to DC and the Boston area. I brought along my travel journal supplies (watercolors, brush, pens and pencil). I had a very small journal with me (4x5) that I purchased on a trip, I did not know if the paper would hold the watercolor as desired. It was pretty good: the wash behind the boats got a bit fuzzy but otherwise the colors sat on the paper pretty well. It is such a cute size (which is why I left my fingers in some of the photos) I will keep playing in it, but I also found that the single wc sheets were great to work on. I cut them ahead of time to fit in my purse easily and I had those with me everywhere so I could do a quick pencil sketch on location. I took photos with my phone that I could use as reference for the colors when I returned to the hotel. My favorite new tool is the Pigma brush pen; I love the way it forces me to incorporate the darkest values. I will be reviewing this pen in the upcoming Adventure Journal News.
