The bags and supplies I use for art on-the-go

My latest YouTube video goes into what and how I pack for making art on-the-go. You don’t want your supplies and art-kit to weigh you down and become cumbersome, or you will be less likely to take it with you. And the more we take the art bag with us, the more likely we are to MAKE MORE ART – which is always the goal, right? I’ve spent years awkwardly stashing supplies in my backpack or purse and constantly moving them from bag to bag, only to discover that I don’t have what I need when inspiration really strikes. Instead, I now keep a small bag packed with exactly the supplies I need to create en plein air. I do so much more urban sketching and nature sketching from life, now that I keep a bag ready-to-go like this. I sometimes leave it in my car so it’s there to grab. That way you can more easily attach a drawing session to the end of your work day or at lunch.

I hope you go take a look at the video, and if you haven’t yet, please subscribe and hit the notifications button to catch all my future art-related videos. I’m grateful to every one of you that shares this with someone you might think will enjoy it!

  1. Hello!

    The YouTube algorithm presented me with this video and I am grateful. There’s one small question: What is the name of or bag style of that crossbody bag? I’ve rewatched and can’t seem to come up with an answer. The Baggallini website has more than 200 crossbody bags listed. Eeeps! A bag that can comfortably carry a 32-ounce Nalgene?!! Yes, please!

    Thank you in advance for your time and help.
