DANIEL SMITH Hand Poured Watercolor Half Pan Set – Earth: Desert to Mountains

Earth – Desert to Mountains Hand Poured Watercolor Half Pan Set has 3 unique* DANIEL SMITH colors plus 3 steadfast, earthy colors to take you from desert landscapes to rugged mountains, and even picturesque urban landscapes of stone, stucco, adobe and tile!

 

Pigments that are warm and textured like the earth. The first thing I thought when I saw this set was textures of weathered buildings, streets paved in stone, terracotta rooftops and sun bleached doorways…beautiful cities built of stone and earth. It also brought to mind vast arid landscapes of dunes, rocky cliffs and deep gorges.

While the set is not intended to be a standalone palette (no blues) these paints were selected for their mixing ability and unique visual qualities, and are a great way to expand your color collection.”  -Brenda Swenson

Buff Titanium*:  Spatter or drop a brushload of Buff Titanium into a moist wash and enjoy the pigment displacement, it is especially effective used that way to make clouds in the sky. Unique to DANIEL SMITH, Buff Titanium resembles the ecru shades of sand and antique lace and simulates the porous texture of an eggshell. It is a most welcome neutral, with its’ semi-transparent to opaque, non-staining properties. Pre-mix Buff Titanium with Quinacridone Rose or Perinone Orange for subtle hues and matte surfaces ideal for the velvety petals of your favorite flowers. Mix with Indigo or Van Dyck Brown to create slate-colored shadows and soft feathers. Glaze a dried landscape with a misty, atmospheric mood.

Raw Sienna Light::  DANIEL SMITH Raw Sienna Light has more golden yellow tones than our Raw Sienna. This Sienna is a granulating color too, but a bit smoother in washes and is non-staining rather than low staining. Washes suggest sunny wheat fields, dried savannah grasses and other sunbaked landscapes.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Pigment: PY 42

 

Bronzite Genuine*: A warm honey-bronze color with lustrous sparkle provided by very fine films of iron oxide. The fibrous, fairly fragile Bronzite stone from Brazil is occasionally used in jewelry but excels as a watercolor pigment. It’s a warm golden-brown in masstone – somewhere between ochre and sienna, but distinctly different – that lets down into pale washes of soft, always warm, sandy beige. In a wash on cold press or rough paper, the brown settles out of this intriguing special-effect color.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Pigment: Genuine Bronzite

 

Venetian Red:  An earthy red-brown with opaque, sedimentary properties, Venetian Red is great for fall paintings and applications similar to Indian Red. Drop Venetian Red into a wet Lunar Earth wash for exciting results. Venetian Red is medium staining, lifts with some difficulty when dry, but leaves a special warm afterglow when blotted at the damp state.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Opaque
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 3-Medium Staining
  • Pigment: PR 101

 

Burnt Sienna Light:  A beautiful earthy color, DANIEL SMITH Burnt Sienna Light is redder than our Burnt Sienna, more transparent and slightly less granulating. In very light washes, it makes a good, light flesh tone for portraits, and in darker washes, it is a rich red-brown.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Pigments: PR 101, PO 48

 

Lunar Black*:  Imagine a transparent black with an expansive value range and pigment particles that react like magnetic shavings attracting and repelling each other. Unique pigment properties make Lunar Black a radically reticulating color. When dry, a Lunar Black wash resembles a marbled moonscape. This mottled stony texture can be successfully glazed. You can even gently paint into a wet-to-damp Lunar Black, dropping into the watery pigment, virtually any combination of favorites. Lunar Black is a wonderful mixer adding exciting black granulation to the mix! Lunar Black is an inorganic neutral black watercolor pigment and a DANIEL SMITH exclusive. Think Black Magic-and re-think black.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Pigment: PBk 11
