DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolor Secondary Edition 3-Color Set
A companion to the Primary 3-Color Set, and a beautiful selection on its own, the Secondary Edition is remarkably versatile. Added to primary colors, you’ll mix shades with greater tone consistency. Jewel hues complement one another, and also function as the other half of the colorwheel.
Includes the following colors:
Quinacridone Burnt Orange – Add to French Ultramarine sky washes to gray the blue mix and render a full value scale. Use Quinacridone Burnt Orange to modify Sap Green in landscapes to achieve rich, mossy greens that coordinate land with sky. Highly durable and extremely transparent, all the Quinacridone colors excel in vivid clarity and intensity.
Undersea Green – An artisan’s favorite, this exciting medium to high staining green blends French Ultramarine with Quinacridone Gold. The inorganic, sedimentary French Ultramarine settles and granulates while the organic, transparent Quinacridone Gold floats into a golden halo. Concentrated, this will remind you of warm sea kelp. Apply with Moonglow, Ultramarines and Quinacridone mixtures to color-coordinate and lend atmosphere to various passages. Undersea Green is beautiful touched damp or dry brushed with Interference Gold. Use Undersea green into autumn leaf paintings.
Carbazole Violet – This slightly granular blue-violet is an intense, vibrant color with high-staining properties. A brush stroke of concentrated Carbazole Violet onto dry paper moves the pigment from black-violet to clear purple, and can invent an iris petal with each stroke. Add Indigo to Carbazole Violet, along with Quinacridone Rose or Anthraquinoid Red. Blot, squeegee and incise damp passages to created veins, variegated passages and highlights.
