Portable Cotman Water Colour Set

I recently purchased a new portable water colour field set for painting outdoors. 
Decided to try it at my local zoo on some quick animal sketches. Very happy 
with the set. It contains a portable container for storing water, and two water cups 
for cleaning brushes. Has numerous paint trays for mixing, and is supplied
with a brush. The paints are Winsor & Newton, Cotman series. They are
replaceable and several colours can be purchased. The downside is that the 
stopper for the container leaks because it isn't a tight seal. I compensated by adding
a rubber washer (from a plumbing store) to deal with the leak.    

Here are some samples of giraffes done with the set. The art was taken with 
my cameraand I apologize about the picture quality.
