The original Portable Painter Classic is about the size of a standard smartphone, only one-inch thick and just 5.1oz (146gm.) Yet it transforms in seconds to a complete, professional palette with a sturdy pedestal base, that’s great on uneven surfaces. It fits effortlessly in a pocket, purse or daypack and it’s ultra-light for travel, both on or off-road. It includes two detachable water containers, two folding palette plates with plenty of deep mixing wells, twelve detachable half-pans (W&N size), a synthetic, folding, double brush, anodized aluminum clasp and a silicone band to retain the clasp and hold extra brushes and pens while painting. You’ll find that the Classic is awesome for on the go and can even be used hands-free, straddling a knee. Just slip it in a pocket, purse or daypack and you’ll have everything you need for travel, urban sketching, nature journaling and plein air painting.
