I went supply shopping yesterday at my favorite art supply store and picked up some needed sketchbooks,blocks, inks, waterbrush, etc. But at the register was the cutest little thing! I couldn't believe an ART supply store would have one of these - a tiny pan watercolor set. It is 2.5" wide and 1/75" high. (first picture)
Inside are 8 teeny blocks of watercolor. And a brush. :) I just laughed it off until I saw the sample painted by an employee. I figured for $1.39 I couldn't go wrong for carrying in my purse for adding color to sketches made when I'm out shopping. ESPECIALLY if i'm using a waterbrush. Heck it even has a hole for hanging from a keychain.
Colors: white, yellow, orange, red, blue, green, brown, black.
The following two sketches were made waiting for my bus at Wal-Mart with the pan set and waterbrush. I had no support surface, just the sketchbook. I held it and the pan in one hand and sketched with the w/c - not too bad (in my humble opinion)
