Yes, another Palette! I swear my last one (fingers crossed!)
I used to have these four travel palettes by my bed.
It was quite a juggling act at night if I wanted to use colors in 2-3 palettes.
*YES, I know I could’ve limited myself to 22 pigments but I don-wanna!!*
I have nine of my favorite Primateks,
my basic travel palette colors,
and have space to swap out colors
I want to try and compare — like the row of similar oranges (they look the same
but they are varying in opacity and brands,
and I am seeing which suits my images more…)
I have room to have a couple of
special shortcut mixes on hand too!
BTW, I removed the lid, and I think I can always reattach it if I wanted to… it was a simple pin mechanism. While I don’t try big washes in
bed as I love my sheets, I appreciate a few small
mixing tins magnetized to the inside lid do
the trick when I want to mix colors, and
I can use the entire tin lid if pushed for a big wash.
What about my old ones? Into the travel bag
they go, ready for action outdoors! They stack
neatly on one side, or I only take what I want that day.
My new Derwent will not be going on outings!
Current colors, above, which I am sure will change some as I play with this new tin>
BTW, not sure I love the magnetized pans for paints… the magnets are not that strong and not as secure. It is nice to easily swap out a paint but if these are dropped they go flying!
*do you really want to know how I know that?*
The images below were part of my maiden voyage with my new palette!

Me… why I journal!
