New mini palette and lazy

I just realized how dormant this blog has been. I am sketching but not posting. Some if it has been that the sketches were for me only and the rest, well that's just been laziness.

It's all about to change :)

To start off the rebirth of this blog is a quick photoshop collage of my new mini palette. (The center image is actual size. the top and bottom were adjusted to fit the canvas)

While in Lisbon for the Urban Sketching Symposium my girlfriend and I stopped at a few antique shops. One of them had this old eyeglass case w/ glasses. Immediately I thought it would make a great palette for my purse. So with a little coaxing we were able to buy just the case. (it was dirt chewap too)

It currently has 5 half pans and a brush i cut down. There's a pen barrel that I have kept on the brush to protect the bristles in my purse. So if I flip it around it acts as an extender making for the right length brush. (similar to Cathy Johnson's drinking straw idea)

The palette measures 4 3/8" x 1 3/4" x 5/8" and weighs almost nothing!!!

I finished it last night so we'll see how it works. I must say it fits anywhere.
