Here's my Plein Air Pallette

In my previous post, someone asked what I use for sketching. I've settled on this Homee watercolor pallette. It's about 10.5 X 5 inches when folded up and inside I keep my Holbein watercolor brush and right now I'm using a 01 Prismacolor pen. I also have a pencil and a piece of paper towel.

It's nice and flat and will fit into a purse or backpack easily. My pen and brush etc. fit right inside when it's closed. I use a small Moleskin sketchbook for my garden journal and a larger one for landscape sketches.


  1. I love this , such a classic picture!. I should post mine as well. Did you ever get a chance to look up that book i mentioned?, I love your purple flowers.

  2. Melanie, I did check out that book and it looks great! I've added it to my "to read" list!
    Those little violets happened to pop up in behind some other flowers. I just love them, so there they will stay!

  3. I could look at the sketching kits for hours non stop, thank you for sharing:-). And sketches are great, very great.
