Small size tubes of traditional oil paints and watermixable oil paints are especially handy for painting in the field. A smaller size tube fits better in your pochade box and means your travel kit can either be smaller or you can take more colours with you when you paint outdoors.
At Jackson’s Art Supplies we have an enormous selection of oil colours but only a few come in very small size tubes, and those are all in sets. The small tubes are in starter or trial sets in sizes 12ml, 15ml, 18ml, 20ml, 21ml and 22ml.
Many manufacturers make these introductory sets which can be useful for plein air painters.
