As I mentioned on a previous post I favor a 16 colour selection palette. I needed though a box, preferably small to hold these 16 colours when I’m sketching outdoors.

The camera has to be of a very good quality, with very good lens that doesn’t distort the edges of the image, and good sensors that can catch accurately the colours of the painting, mounted on a tripod with a good light installation in order […]
