What is the Best Oil Painting Palette?

Oil Painting Palettes

Did you know that you can store oil paint from one paint session to another in the refrigerator? It's true, every single day, I pack up my palette and place it in the freezer so that the next day or three days from now I can still use the paint that I mixed from the previous paint session!

So that knowledge alone should make you think again about your palette selection. Add that knowledge plus what you learned from the post about "What is the Best Easel for Me".  Before we dive into recommendations, let's figure out what you want first with 2 questions.

2 Key Questions to Ask BEFORE you purchase an Palette.

Below is a handy-dandy info graphic I created that provides helpful information about what palettes I recommend and why.  You pick what is best for you!  Included in the handy-dandy graphic is a link to my affiliate Blick Art Materials where I actually purchased these easels.
