I love my new on the go watercolor palette by Kremer Pigments. In my opinion the small Kremer palette is a great watercolor travel palette for three reasons.
1. Its small. Its only about 5 inches by 2 inches when its closed.
2 It has plenty of room to mix colors even though it is a compact size.
3. You can fill up to 24 half pans with your own watercolor paint colors and arrange them any way you want. This is the main reason I got it. I wanted to use the same colors when I’m on the go that I use when I paint at home. It comes with a tray that has clips designed to hold 8 full pans or about 14 half pans and a small brush. This tray lifts out and you can fill it with 24 half pans. I put magnetic tape on the bottom of my pans so they stay in place. I also wrote the name of each paint color on the pans with an extra fine sharpie. I have had some of my paints for years. I keep adding to my collection a few tubes at a time. They last a long time, but it is an investment to buy very many paint colors. **After taking a watercolor class on Craftsy (January 2016) I now use the Daniel Smith Essentials Set (a limited palette) plus a few favorite colors for most of my watercolor projects.
So far the farthest I’ve traveled with my new on the go watercolor palette is the kitchen table. I just started an online art journal class with Joanne Sharpe called Draw Your Awesome Life. Joannes’s lettering book is a favorite of mine. I decided to use my new palette for this class and it has been perfect! It fits in a small clear cosmetic bag with my 5 1/2 inch square art journal by Global Art Materials. There is also enough room for my water brush, pencil, pens and paper towel. I like to keep my on the go watercolor kit near my kitchen. Its handy when I want to do a quick project, be near my family or watch a movie while I paint.
Here are the first two pages I’ve done for Joanne’s class using my Kremer palette.
Years ago I bought a DVD with an art journaling class by Gay Kraeger. She is an excellent teacher and now teaches a class on Craftsy.
