Creative inspiration can strike at any time and any place. That’s why it’s so handy to have a favorite sketchbook in your bag to jot down your ideas. But there are many other portable art supplies that you can take with you on your excursions, too. Whether you’re a landscape painter or a casual drawer during your commute, the right tools will help you stay creative even when you’re on the go.
We’ve selected some of the most useful art supplies to keep in your repertoire. For instance, if you’ve ever wanted to try en plein air painting like the Impressionist masters, but don’t want to lug your extensive array of paint tubes, there are portable watercolor paint sets in the form of a small booklet. Or, if you need a durable yet elegant way to carry your finished drawings, portfolios are a must.
Check out all of our selections below.
