“I chose 18 incredibly mixable colors from the DANIEL SMITH watercolor collection which allows me to mix and layer, making joyous and happy colors without making mud. Oh, I might paint a luminous Arizona monsoon sky or a scarlet Sedona red rock landscape, or a Grand Canyon view but my earth tones grays will be dazzling. Each color was carefully chosen for it’s individual beauty and ability to be mixed with each other, brilliance and tinting strength. These colors are perfect for florals, landscapes and portraits as well as anything your imagination can dream up. Using these colors will give you the freedom to express your creativity with beautiful color and you might want to dance!” —Karen Elaine
