Watercolor & Sketching Toolkits

Our versatile and rugged kits include all you need to start your sketching adventure. Available in two sizes and multiple colors.

A Pocket Art Toolkit in grey with blue trim lays open with a sketchbook showing a watercolor painting of a coastal scene. A Pocket Palette filled with colorful watercolor pans sits on top.

Compact Watercolor Palettes & Pans

Our pocket-sized watercolor palettes feature a high-quality mixing surface and a magnetic base to mix-and-match an array of stainless steel refillable watercolor pans.

Three sizes of watercolor palettes: the Demi Palette, the Folio Palette, and the Pocket Palette, all with assorted pans with watercolors of various colors, and watercolor pans scattered in the foreground.

Pulling inspiration from Lisa Spangler’s walk in the woods, we invite you to explore the browns, blacks, yellows, and reds in your palette to explore painting mushrooms. Start by swatching mushroom colors in your sketchbook, like Lisa did in the photo above. Then, experiment painting little, white mushrooms with inky dark shadows and roots and a bulbous, orange-red mushroom to stretch your exploration of color and form.⁠

Among other tips and techniques, Lisa included a special list of watercolors she recommends for this meditative activity. Read the blog post for all the details: link in bio!⁠
