A Little Handmade Souvenir from the Symposium
I met some sketchers who use candy or mint tins as a palette. Now that I've learned from Shari's workshop that you only need three colors, I decided to make my own.
I spent last of my Euros at the airport gift shop to buy a tin of gum (and tossed out the gum inside because they tasted awful). I colored the inside with white acrylic Sharpie marker so the true paint colors show up, and put dabs of six tube watercolors (three colors I've used in Shari's workshop: Winsor and Newton aureolin yellow, Jack Richesson quinacridone rose, Jack Richesson ultramarine blue, plus warm/cool variation of each primary: Winsor and Newton quinacridone gold, Holbein permanent red, Jack Richesson phthalo blue). It's so fun to use this little palette! It also reminds me of great time I had in Barcelona every time I hold it :)
