Tuesday's Tips & Techniques for Watercolor Painting

Travel Palette
With the weather warming up, it is great to have a travel palette. I found this nifty little travel palette it has 18 small wells you can load with lots of colors. I prefer to squeeze my watercolor paints from a tube into the palette, leave it open to let them dry. This takes about a week. This palette, originally called a Hommee palette (I think it has a new name now), is great because the lid hinges and it has a rubber ring around the lid so nothing leaks when latched closed. It also have a removable tray inside the lid. There is plenty of room for mixing colors. This palette, a few brushes, a small water container and some paper is all you need to carry with you to paint on the go.
