This is the ErinHill Travel Sketching Kit.
If you’re booking term classes the kit is available for purchase on your class booking form. Pickup at your first class. (Do get a little zip bag to put them in.)
We have custom designed our own Sketch Kit which you receive on your first day of class or Workshop. We use particular colours in both w’colour paint and aquarelle pencils. We apply them in a unique layering system. This keeps it simple, fast and is easy for you to learn how to apply colour to your sketches.
Exactly what you’ll need if you are sketching anywhere in the world. Designed to be minimal, fit in your shoulder bag and be ready to pullout anytime. Do get yourself a small zipper bag to hold everything in the sketch kit. You’ll also need to get a small water container. I use the pot shown below.
If you are joining our International Sketch Holidays, look for something which has similar colours. Brand is less important. We particularly need the yellow ochre colour in the aquarelle pencils.
Do bring at least 2 or more sketchbooks. You’ll fill them quickly and not always easy to purchase in some countries. Also bring 2 sets of aquarelle pencils. They are easy to misplace when traveling.

Cotmans Pocket Plus Watercolours. We take out 4 colours, viridian, cadmium yellow, white and alizarin to have those shown below, in that order.
1.Pale yellow hue 2.Yellow ochre 3.Cadmium red hue 4.Permanent rose 5.Burnt sienna 6.Burnt umber 7.Hookers green dark 8.Sap green 9.Cerulean 10. Ultramarine 11.Cobalt 12.Purple Lake
