Also I tried to keep the plants in airtight sacs, but that takes too much space in the suitcase. As I sketch in a small book, app.13×20 cm, I cannot use much water in my watercolors and I have to pay attention to the different stades of coloring: from light to darker colors and a full day of rest between two sessions, and of course the brushes.  And I am making a small sketch book with experiments in color.
