My Watercolor Palette

Hey Guys, here are the colors I have in my watercolor palette. I also use these exact same colors for oil painting. 
There are 15 colors total. If you only wanted to use 12 full pans, I would remove Raw Umber, Cobalt Blue, and Ultramarine Violet. I really don't need the Sap Green, but I like to mix it with Cadmium Red for some really nice earthy reds. For you Munsell enthusiast, a low chroma yellow red. If your not familiar with Munsell terminology, it basically means a greyed yellow red, at a particular value. Could be a light greyed yellow red, or a dark greyed yellow red.

Koko!

Heres a quick pencil sketch and watercolor portrait of my brothers dog KoKo. She's a Pittbull, and always wants someone to pet her. I sketched her back in 2012, but I decided to throw some color on her today. I like going through my old sketchbooks and randomly adding watercolor to them.

5X5, Pencil & Watercolor 
  I wish I knew the manufacturer of this small 5.5X5.5 sketchbook because it takes watercolors very well. It says Hand . Book and Trav.e.logue, on the inside cover, but that is all. I bought the book from my local art supply store a few years ago, so it might not be available anymore. If anyone has one of these sketchbooks, and knows the manufacturer, please let me know in the comments.
