Paint tip: paint box
On the first photo is some "paint boxes" used by me, more or less. The paint box I want to recommend to the novice painter is something of the sort like this on the photo to the right. Regarding its size please look at the match box to the right for the heart on the palette. This box have room for the paint and equipment and you can also place a palette and a canvas inside.
