A curated, limited palette

The Demi Explore Palette includes just six Van Gogh® by Royal Talens watercolors: Transparent Yellow Medium, Permanent Red Light, Phthalo Blue, Yellow Ochre, Quinacridone Rose, Payne’s Grey. Every color has a high degree of transparency, lightfastness, and is certified non-toxic.

Working within a limited palette can be freeing—you’re not overwhelmed by too many choices, and you’re pushed to explore color mixing in new ways.

These colors are also available in the larger Explore Palette.

The Ultralight Sketcher fits in your pocket.

Fits right in your pocket.

The Demi Palette is our most compact watercolor palette at 2-3/16" x 1-3/4". However small, its tiny size belies its ability to carry up to 12 different watercolors.

The Hahnemüehle ZigZag book is barely bigger than the Demi Palette, and a 3" red silicone cross band keeps these two snuggled together tight in your pocket.

Rounding off this bundle is our favorite little water brush. The perfect size to take with you anywhere!
