Porcelain Watercolor Palettes

Porcelain Watercolor Palettes

     A few posts ago, I blogged about the current palettes in my studio and how I love big mixing spaces. Well, today I stopped by a local art store (Davinci Artist Supply) and stumbled upon this giant beautiful porcelain palette that resembled the Tom Lynch Porcelain Palette without all the brush holders. I had extreme difficulty resisting the urge to just pull out my money and walk out the door with it given that porcelain palettes are usually $50+ for any size over 12"

In a previous post here, I mentioned the American Journey Porcelain Palette from Cheap Joe's and it arrived a few weeks back but I didn't get a chance to post about it since I've been getting sick lately.

I really like the clear plastic cover it came with. It make it much more pleasant to look at than the Stephen Quiller palette cover. Time to fill with paints!

Spring is finally here in NYC! Warm weather, flowers, sunshine all around...including allergies. Not so fun.

It's been awhile since my last post but I've finished my last piece and began working on a new flower painting (hopefully in time for Mother's day!)

Types of Palettes

Types of Palettes

The golden rule about palettes is that there is no perfect  palette. The type of palette you use is completely up to personal preference! I would like to note that I am not a palette addict...I just haven't found the one yet. 

There are three main types of palettes: plastic, metal and porcelain/ceramic.
