This morning I went to the Minneapolis Farmer's Market to draw and paint as well as pick up some fresh veggies and flowers. I met up with a group of watercolor painters from the Northstar Watercolor Society, they scheduled to be there for a weekly paint-out they have set up for the summer on Wednesday mornings (see the list of locations for the remainder of the summer here). The paint-outs they have set up are for anyone, members and newbies alike.

They had large palettes, easels, stools, buckets of water, etc. I have gotten used to traveling light, my small paint set, a niji brush, just my 8x8 sketchbook, all in my purse, and it was really a surprise to see all the gear they brought along for a three hour paint-out. Nothing against their gear, but I kind of like my lighter travel version better. It means I can always have a paint-out, no set-up required.
