what's in my art bag

 // Satchel / Topman // Purse / Hand-made by my brother // Watch / John lewis //

I love sharing "what's in my bag posts", today i thought i would share with you lovelies, what i carry with me when I go painting. I try not to take to much with me as it will hurt my shoulders making my hand far to shaky to paint, so I often carry the essentials. Today on my doctors orders I went for a nice walk on the walk i stopped for a bit of painting, the best way I relax is sitting amongst nature and trying to capture it whilst the birds are singing. My art satchel is a second hand gift from my brother, it is from Topman but it is the perfect size for all my arty needs. Have you shared a what's in my bag post recently? I would love to see what's in your bag..

  1. Satchels are perfect for an arty bag. I'm dreaming of a bright orange leather one I have seen that is well over my budget.
    Thinking of sharing a 'what's in my bag' post after being inspired by your blog! x

  9. I carry pencils, paints and paper when I go into uni, but I bought some journals so I'm hoping to sort of take them on my travels to document bits and bobs I find throughout the day... I just hope I don't look weird whipping out paper and pencils in the middle of places :P haha Thanks for your comment too, such a wonderful thing. You are a true inspiration!
