Be More Than Ready

"Be prepared! All of your gear should be in a state
of readiness so you can concentrate on painting.
Choose your supplies as you would
choose weapons before battle."
~ R. Schmid

"Be more than ready. Be present in your discipline.
Remember your gift. Be grateful for your gift
and treat it like a gift. Cherish it, take care of it,
and pass it on."
~ A.D.Smith

Sketch done while waiting with limited supplies.

If you carry reference material and pocket-size supplies,
you'll seldom waste time waiting again!
This sketch was started at the dentist's office
this morning and was finished at home today.

Supplies Clockwise - paper towels, kneaded eraser, Pentel Aquash Water Brush, soft or 2B pencil, (I forgot my Pigma Micron pen, but a plain ole black ballpoint pen worked just fine), Field Artist Pro travel box, with additional half pans from the Dainayw Watercolor Set (optional), and 
6 x 6" Global Arts WC Journal. The reference is a free image from Pixabay.com

These supplies can be purchased through my Amazon Store here.

"Isn't it amazing how 'lucky' the people are
who put in countless hours of preparation?"
Stay Inspired and Positive My Friends!
