“[T]here is nothing more frustrating than struggling to haul all your equipment down street after cobblestoned street, with that magical aura of old-world beauty obscured by the sweat pouring into your eyes.” –Scott Burdick, Professional Artist

Getting out into the world and painting landscapes, buildings and other places of significance can be a rewarding experience. However, many times artists find themselves backpacking across rough terrain to reach their intended destinations. Hiking up mountains, through forests and around lakes leads to accidents that in the past could only have been prevented by minor miracles. Now, with Daniel Smith paint kits artists are given the opportunity to be restricted only by their bodies’ physical limitations. Daniel Smith also provides information from artists who have mastered the technique of traveling with their materials. Those articles may be found along with the painting kits on the product page above and in Daniel Smith’s Watercolor Tips, Tutorials and Articles section.

It’s Daniel Smith’s hope that the paint kits and information together provide artists with the necessary tools to make their trips a resounding success.
