If You Were On An Island – 5 Favorite Art Supplies

If you were stranded on an island . . . what five favorite art supplies would you want to keep you busy until you’re rescued?  I was thinking . . . there would be great inspiration on an island.  I’d paint the wildlife, plants, sea, trees, etc.  Then try and think of home and paint that as well.  I could use leaves for impressions in the gesso.

My top five would be;

  • Cold press watercolor paper
  • Watercolor crayons
  • Gesso
  • India Ink – if I had one color to choose from – Blue
  • Aqua brush

How about you?  What are your favorites?  Are you a scrapbooker?  Painter?  Sculptor?  What could you use on the island?

Just for fun!

Warmest creative wishes,
