I use this egg container as my palette. It has a snap lid, so colors will not dry quickly. I will use lid for mixing colors. This is plastic so it's light-weight. I will take this palette for traveling

I also have this ceramic (egg dish) palette for additional colors for mixing. Cheaper than similar palettes in art supplies stores, so it's very beneficial.

My first professional paint set: Extra-fine artists' watercolours 24 colours in 2,5 ml pans, palette, plastic box. Since I try "Saint-Petersburg" by Nevskaya Palitra there is no way back and true adventure is started. I become a gurman of pigments and buy new exotic colors for my paintings.

Fontaine

25 sheets Block 30x40cm 140lb Rough

This paper is slightly cheaper than Bockingford, and are still effective BUT are no-where near the quality of the Bockingford, Arches (previous). In fact i’ve found it to be very pale colors after dry. But it dry quickly and this is the reason why I use it often during painting demonstrations. Glued all 4 edges by transparent WHITE glue which is awesome.
