The Portable Painter brings together all the elements of a complete watercolor set into a compact, elegant shape. The result is not just easy to carry, but simpler and more versatile to use. It was designed from the ground up, so it' s unlike anything else on the market. The Portable Painter is great on any flat surface, but on uneven ground, the built-in water containers excel as a sturdy pedestal base for the entire set. Perhaps most surprisingly it can even balance on a knee. This allows your hands to be completely free to hold both paper and brush as you paint, so it's ideal for urban sketching and plein air painting. Watercolor enthusiasts will love its quality construction and attention to details such as brush rests, plenty of mixing wells, plus a unique, folding double brush. Whether you're on a trail in the Sierras, at a sidewalk cafe in Venice, or even at home, you'll find the Portable Painter is a wonderful companion!
