I was using this palette today on a watercolour commission. I have to see if they still make them like this.
Glenys gave it to me in 1990. I loved it then and still do. But before It travelled with me recently, I had to tape all round the outside edges, to stop it leaking when I have washes in the lid. Seems to be working so far. You can see the cracks in the pic.
I rarely clean the colours out in the front. I do clear the ones from the lid if I need to, but sometimes what’s there adds to the interest of the next painting.
Must say it looks very colourful here, just before I started my work today.
