Portable Palettes is about traveling and painting with watercolor. I discovered the joy of this wonderful activity when I began my European watercolor touring business. It passes on information that I've gathered as a painting teacher while traveling in France, Italy and Greece. It is a guide for independant travelers who want to paint what they see as they travel and will provide a structure to start you on your way to finding the satisfaction that comes with visual journaling. If you like the idea of spending part of a sunny vacation day under a tree, in a grassy field or on rocky hill, totally immersed in drawing and watercolor painting, you will find this book a helpful tool.
