Watercolour Tip Of The Week (2nd June 2005)
Laying Out The Watercolour Palette
It is advisable to lay out your palette in a methodical manner.
I use a metal watercolour box & my colours are laid out in groups ranging from blues to reds to yellows.
I keep my most commonly used colours along the top & have occasional colours on the left hand side.
I always use tubes & top them up as necessary each time I paint.
I keep them moist by adding a small amount of water every few days, so they are always fresh & ready for use when required.
