Features 32 colors*, 16 full pans, 16 half pans, plus white gouache. Color key on back. These are hand filled and made one at at time.

    Worth every penny! This palette was a game-changer for my watercolor work. Although I had previously given a lot of careful consideration to the colors in my watercolor palette, it wasn’t cutting it for me. I decided to order Jack’s custom palette and have absolutely loved using it. These colors give me such a wide range of options, especially when depicting the natural world. The palette itself is portable and great for working with both at home and in the field. You won’t regret buying this palette. It is a great gift to give yourself!
