Susie's suggested  TRAVEL PALETTE SET UPS
Palettes with Flat Wells

I prefer a palette with flat bottomed wells (rather than slanted) and
a large undivided mixing area. Since I like to fill the wells from my
tubes and let the paint dry between uses, the cover makes a nice
dust cover and handy secondary mixing area.


For a starting palette layout, I like to use a chromatic arrangement
of paint  colors. Using the colors of the rainbow as a guide, the
order for these colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and
violet.  The spaces between these basic colors are reserved for
additional colors in these hues to be added later.
