The artists' studio that fits in your pocket - our Sketching tin is the ultimate tool for convenience when sketching at home or on location in a coffee shop, on a walk in the countryside or anywhere else.
It's small enough to pop in your pocket and carry with you at all times at 9.5 x 6.2 x 2.2 cm (3.7 x 2.4 x 0.9 inches).
Just fill the brush with water before you head out and you have everything you need to draw and paint.
Each tin contains:
1. Three half pans of exceptionally highly pigmented watercolours, made from pure pigments mixed with natural gum arabic. Each colourway is carefully selected to mix a beautiful spectrum of colours. Just slide out the metal holder to change the colourway.
2. A waterbrush in two parts with a stopper so you can store water in the barrel and screw on the brush when you're ready to paint.
3. A 2b pencil.
4. A metal pencil sharpener.
5. An eraser with a protective cardboard cover.
All this creative potential is snugly contained in a tin smaller than a phone. The inside of the lid of the tin is ideal for use as a mixing palette and each tin comes with a cotton cuff around it for wiping excess pigment. In the box that contains your tin, you will also find a colour wheel card to demonstrate your chosen colourway and The Sketching Guide, full of tips and ideas about your tin and how to use it.
The Sketching tin is petrol blue coloured on the outside. The lid is illustrated with a monochrome scene of the beautiful Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, Canada. This is where Joan of Art live and work and where the Sketching Tins are designed and put together.

Primary - 1. Permanent Rose, 2. Yellow, 3. Cerulean Blue
