Tools of my Trade, watercolor, 5″ x 7″

In response to this week’s challenge, I painted the tools that I use to create watercolor paintings:  my palette with paints in the wells and some puddles on the mixing surface, brushes, a roll of paper towels, a small spray bottle for wetting the paints, and two containers of water.   One container is used for rinsing brushes and the other is clean water for mixing with paints.

And I have to admit that my palette isn’t usually this clean.  The paints don’t stay in the wells and I don’t always rinse my brush before mixing a color, which results in dirty spots, especially in the yellows.
