So, let me share a secret with you: I find myself traveling more, ever since I started using a traveler’s digital watercolor painting notebook. After all, I don’t have to worry about how I’ll carry my supplies anymore!

Embrace portable stylus pens

A pencil is to a sketchbook, whereas a stylus is to a digital tablet! It allows you to create wonderful pieces of art with ultimate precision and care!

So, you’ll definitely need a high-quality stylus pen to get you started with your digital art. This allows you to add intricate details to your piece, and even help you experiment with different brushes. Plus, it’s compact and lightweight, making it perfect for your adventures!

Take advantage of the Cloud

But when it comes to digital art, you can store your art into the Cloud, safeguarding it from any malfunctions!

Not only that, but backing your digital art up in the Cloud gives you access anytime and anywhere. After all, you’ll only need your device and an Internet connection to access it!

By taking advantage of the Cloud, you can travel more confidently, knowing your artworks are secure!

Use travel-friendly art apps

It’s undeniable that there’s numerous digital art apps available. But did you know that many of them are travel-friendly?

It’s because these apps have a variety of brushes, filters, and editing options, allowing you to create artworks even when you’re on the go. So, whether you’re doing quick sketches or creating intricate paintings, these apps can make your life easier!

Plan your art stops
