Comments about Stephen Quiller Color Wheel Palette:
The Quiller Color Wheel Palette is perfect for my adult watercolor classes. The lightweight, circular design is perfect for plein aire painting as well as studio use. The color wheel aspect of this palette is perfect for teaching and re-enforcing the power of effectively using complimentary colors, color temperature and mixing techniques. The large open areas in the center of the wheel and the lid enable the artist to mix colors to their hearts content, and keep the colors ready if the painting isn't finished in one sitting. The only thing I would add is to flatten the top of the outer ring by the color pans so each color can be identified with a marker.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Overly complex piece of junk.
from Dublin, CA
The construction is very cheap. It is made from very thin plastic and I serious doubt that it would last.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I'll better be able to learn my color chart using this palette. Thanks!

I was looking for a round palette for watercolors. There are not as many available in the round shape. This is just fine, although I wanted as many wells as possible, so I found something to divide all of the corner wells, now I have 40 wells, yea! I am now totally satisfied with my purchase. Also wanted it covered, this fits my needs.

I really like this palette, its easy to set up like the color wheel a brilliant idea by Stephan Quiller.It's easy to remember what your colors are because of this, and there is lots of room to mix your colors right in the middle. After using several palettes this is one of my favorites.

This product offers organization and management of paints. I am unable to paint every day but know the paints will be available and in good shape when I remove the lid. The layout makes the grouping of colors and mixing very easy to work with.

Other people in my class have noticed how nice it is and asked me where they could get one.
Couldn't do without it!

I use this palette for watercolor painting, and love the layout as well as the large mixing area. I have tried other palettes but this is my favorite.
Finally....I understood the color wheel!

I have several of these palettes - each with a different brand of paint in them. I could never understand the color wheel (I know....it's so easy...) until I had the colors placed on this palette. Helps me see the mixes as I start a painting.
Large and lightweight
By Amateur artist
Lots of room to mix colors in the center or mix up a bunch in an extra well so you can use it again later if you clean the center for fresh colors. The wells are large which I like because they fit my wider wash brushes and make picking up plenty of paint more efficient. I had a 5ml tube of paint and it was still enough to cover the bottom of the well but the reservoirs can accommodate a full 15ml tube.The lid is handy to protect paints from dust or when storing/transporting, though this is not a travel size/plein air palette. If that's important, I would go with one at least a little smaller to fit more easily in a tote.
