Sketchbook + Art Supplies= A Portable Entertainment Center

Artist Jane LaFazio talks to

Do you have a place where you like to work? Do you ever pack it up and take your work outside? If so, what do you take with you?
I mostly work in my studio at home. A messy place all my own. Sometimes, in the evening, I’ll stitch or sketch while watching TV with my husband.

As for going outside, one of my very favorite things to do is to go out with my sketch bag and draw and paint. I carry a Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook, pencil, permanent ink pen, kneadable eraser, a small palette of watercolors and my Niji waterbrush (a paint brush that holds water inside its cartridge). I consider my sketch bag my entertainment center and I can go anywhere, be anywhere and thoroughly enjoy myself sketching and painting whatever catches my fancy. I try to draw and paint in my sketchbook a couple of times a week, whether at my house, or on location. My husband also sketches, and we’ll often go together and hang out somewhere for an hour or two and draw.
