Another road trip to Portland, Maine…

Tiny Altoid watercolor travel kit with waterbrush

The tiniest of the Altoid tins can hold five half-pans of watercolor or any combination of one or two full-pans and a couple of half-pans.  The lid works well for mixing colors and a sock-cuff on my wrist keeps the waterbrush clean.  It’s a perfect, tiny, travel kit!

This is the view through my bedroom window.  The sound of gulls celebrating another rising of the sun awakened me as fog lifted from the marshes of low tide.
