I brought this little watercolor journal on my recent trip to Kaua'i. It's another Moleskine journal, but this one has watercolor paper and is in a landscape format. I really liked the size of it, and the paper is really high quality. It has the feel of a hot press paper and takes the paint very smoothly and consistently.
I also brought this portable paint set that I've had for a couple of years. It's made by Windsor Newton. All I needed to go with it was a set of small brushes and a bottle of water.
The colors are very basic, but with some mixing it's not too hard to get what you want. The pan is removable with an additional pan space beneath it, but I never needed to use it.

These are the paintings I did while I was there:
(the cottage where we stayed)
(plumeria on the grass)
(the beach at Salt Pond near Port Allen)
I wish I had done more
- but as I said about these journals in an earlier post -
no point in kicking myself about it.
