Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue:  Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue, a mid- toned, slightly red yellow is perfect to add heat, energy and a focus in any painting. Mixed wet into wet with Cerulean Blue you will have a vast array of textured greens in various tones depending on the color balance and amounts of water, from dusky shadow greens to vibrant spring greens. It disperses beautifully in water for smooth, rich washes.  We’ve done it! Safe, Vibrant Cadmium Hue Watercolors! Our new formulas provide all the density and richness of classic cadmium colors. Our hues are virtually identical in color to their namesakes, but cleaner in mixtures and stronger in tints – you’ll find a little goes a long way. Working properties – staining power, semi-transparency and excellent light fastness – are also nearly identical to those of the low-soluble cadmium colors we previously offered.

Quinacridone Gold*:  Everyone’s favorite, Quinacridone Gold replaces Raw Sienna and adds versatility with its glazing and mixing capabilities. It is an excellent low-staining golden yellow pigment that can enhance any mixture. Highly durable and extremely transparent, all the DANIEL SMITH Quinacridone colors excel in vivid clarity and intensity.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Pigments: PO 48 PY 150

 

Quinacridone Rose:  Quinacridone Rose, with its red-violet color, lends itself to fabulous purples. Try with Indigo for deep dusty purples, or Indanthrone Blue for rich, clear purples. Quinacridone Rose can be mixed with Quinacridone Sienna or Burnt Orange in dilute wash states to create fleshtones or convincing sunsets. Highly durable and extremely transparent, all the DANIEL SMITH Quinacridone colors excel in vivid clarity and intensity.

  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating
  • Staining: 4-High Staining
  • Pigment: PB 15:3

 

Cascade Green*:  The craggy peaks of the Cascade Mountains that divide lush, western Washington from the dry, high plains of the east, inspired this unique green. From damp evergreen forests, and alpine meadows to the drier, sunnier open forests, our Cascade Green showcases a million shades of green found in those environments becoming a versatile addition to our artist-preferred greens. As you brush it on, subtle variation from dark to light adds the illusion of depth. Straight from the tube, this rich, mid-range green is cool, dark and mossy. In washes, it has a stunning clarity. In any application, it has excellent lightfastness.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 3-Medium Staining
  • Pigments: PBr 7, PB 15

 

Green Apatite Genuine*:  PrimaTek Green Apatite Genuine Watercolor lets you create a beautiful range of greens – fresh yellow-green to deep olive – with a single tube. This sedimentary color is a dark, almost brown, olive green in mass tone. In washes, the brown settles out of a vivid natural green, creating memorable texture and contrast.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Pigment: Genuine Green Apatite
