  • Everything you need to draw and paint on the go in a pocket sized tin.

    You never know when inspiration will strike - so be prepared to capture any moment and harness your imagination. Our Sketching Tin is the ultimate tool for convenience when sketching on location. It's the perfect birthday or anniversary gift for any artist or anyone who wants to develop a creative hobby. A must for any creative spirit with wanderlust! Ideal for entertaining yourself on holiday, documenting your travels and developing a creative habit everyday.

    Our water colours are striking as individual shades and also have great colour mixing capabilities when used in combination.

    Choose between the Copper tin with white lid and the Brass tin with charcoal lid.

    We have selected colours that are useful as individual shades and also have great colour mixing capabilities when used in combination. There are four different ranges of colours, each with a different mood. Choose from: Primary - 1. Cerulean Blue, 2. Permanent Rose, 3. Yellow. Strong, bold shades. Really versatile for mixing a wide range of useful colours. Earthy - 1. Indigo, 2. Rose Madder, 3. Yellow Ochre. Ideal for rugged landscapes. Robust and rugged colours. Evocative of wood, earth, gorse and clay. Neutral - 1. Indigo, 2. Van Dyke Brown, 3. French Grey. For painting in tones. Indigo is inky, Van Dyke Brown is rich and sepia-like. French Grey is fresh, calm and sophisticated. Neon - 1. Permanent Light Blue, 2. Hot Pink, 3. Lemon Yellow. Pure electric joy! Colours plucked from a candy coloured dream. These colours will light up your artwork like a fluorescent sign. Permanent Light Blue is like bubblegum. Hot Pink is like a tropical ginger flower at full strength and candy floss when diluted. Lemon Yellow is effervescent and zingy. When mixed with Permanent Light Blue it creates a delicious aqua.

    Choose from four ranges of colours:

    Primary - Bold shades. Really versatile for mixing a range of colours.

    Earthy - Ideal for rugged landscapes. Robust and rugged colours.

    Neutral - For painting in tones. Ink, earth and stone.

    Neon - Pure electric joy! Bubblegum, ginger flower and lemon sherbert.

    made from:

    A sturdy metal tin, lined with white vinyl which can be used as a palette to mix colours on. It contains:

    A water brush for painting that splits into two halves for extra portability. One end is the brush and the other is a barrel that can be filled with water before you head out and secured with the stopper - ready to be screwed onto the brush whenever you want to paint.

    Three highly pigmented watercolour half pans. Each half pan has a magnet attached to the base so you can keep it secured anywhere on your tin. The shades have been carefully selected to be mixed into a beautiful spectrum of bright colours: 1 x Cerulean Blue 1 x Permanent Rose 1 x Yellow.

    A 2b pencil for versatile linework and shading. A wrapped rubber emblazoned with the Joan of Art archway and a durable metal pencil sharpener.

    The Sketching Guide displays the colour variations that can be achieved, explains how to use the different components and offers drawing tips and ideas.


    9.5 x 6.2 x 2.2 cm. It's small enough to pop in your pocket and carry with you at all times!
