Which palette to choose to mix its colors?
Not too complicated topic, short review.
What is it for?
What to expect from a watercolor palette?
A palette has pockets to hold paint and water. More or less hollow, the alveoli prevent the various mixtures from getting dirty between them.
The palette can be made of plastic, metal, porcelain or paper. Generally, it is preferred to be white to judge the color of the mixtures.
You can also use white plates (faience or cardboard), small cups, see an egg tray.
The palettes are used:
- In the studio, there is then plenty of room,
- Or in the field, they are then expected to be easily transportable and accompanied by a container of water.
