A world-renowned watercolorist such as Zoltan Szabo knows what a good watercolor palette should be. It should have both big and small wells for mixing color and using larger brushes. The wells should have a sloping configuration and a deeper 'pool' to keep paint from evaporating. It should have no sharp edges to save your brushes and it should be easy to use with a palette knife. To top it off, it should be sized to fit into a backpack or briefcase. Measures: 12-1/2 8-3/4 3/4.
