Current Watercolor & Gouache Palette May 2017

While refilling some pans yesterday, I decided to jettison some colors I wasn’t using and add some colors I use a lot to my Pocket Palette. I usually carry a separate gouache and watercolor palette, so I decided to combine them in my smallest palette, saving on space and fuss. My color choices are just me experimenting with colors over the months and just finding out what I’m always reaching for versus what I never go to.

So good you can almost eat them! But please don't.
All neatly packed into my pocket palette!
So pretty, so pretty!
A mix of gouache and watercolors on this palette. Gouache for the potential to be very opaque, watercolors for the sheer variety of colors.
