Tiny Palette

Like I need another small palette.
Let's see how tiny we can make these, okay? This one is 2 1/4 inches by 1 1/2. I used empty half pans from Daniel Smith to hold the paint - (clockwise from the top left) quinacridone rose, manganese blue, thalo yellow green, ultramarine blue, and new gamboge. The tin is an "Altoids Smalls". I had made one a little larger than this a couple of years ago, and I use it quite a bit. I really don't know what the purpose of having a palette this small is, but why not?

It's the LITTLE things in life, right?

Thanks for the great idea for teeny tiny traveling paints! I'm envisioning small pieces of Arches watercolor paper too. All of this, packed in a ziplock sandwich bag, can be tucked in any size purse. You sure know how to inspire us!
