Peerless Watercolors - Travel Palette and Color Guide
Keep a close eye on your Peerless Color inventory! All 79 colors are listed in color order on rigid white pages. 6 clear acetate pages are included to keep the wet colors from smearing when you put your pages away after painting. Each page is loose to allow easy sorting on your workspace and then bound tightly with a metal clip when you are ready to pack up. Purchase the Travel Palette and Color Guide empty or full.
The "Empty Version" comes with everything but the paint itself! It allows for the artist to have the freedom to fill it themselves with any colors they please! If you want to fill the whole thing with "Forget Me Not Blue" go ahead and do it!
I first started using Peerless dry watercolor sheets 20 years ago, and have collected pretty much the full stash over the years, making up my own travel palette, carefully snipping and attaching pieces from the full sheets to various notebooks, binders, etc and labeling them. But I finally purchased this travel palette where all this work is already done! I tuck it into a pouch with a couple water brushes, small watercolor pad, a pencil and waterproof pen and am good to go! I love the ease of the dry sheets, the vibrancy and that I can have a huge color palette in the same space a dozen regular water color pans fit into. Win win!
I received this travel palette as a surprise gift and the first thing I did was swatch the entire pack! I love having such an array of colors right at my fingertips, so much in fact that I've used up most of the pack and have re-ordered a few of my favorite colors in bottles! I use my Peerless paints to lay down vibrant background washes that won't lift off, and then apply gouache and ink over them. One of my favorites!
This is constantly in my backpack. You never know when you're going to have time to paint, I'm out an about a lot so it's nice to have this conveniently tucked away for when I get a few minutes to myself.
I love to throw the full one in my bag whenever I am out and about. Especially on vacations. Talk about perfect for painting by the pool! Love the history of the paints too
