Hansa Yellow Medium:  Hansa Yellow Medium is a high-tinting, organic pigment. Considered the ‘perfect yellow’, Hansa Yellow Medium offers more control when mixing. Painters admire the purity of this primary pigment and adjust its temperature while avoiding a gray from a hidden complement. Think of a yellow pepper.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Pigment: PY 97

 

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.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating
  • Staining: 3-Medium Staining
  • Pigment: PV 19

 

Ultramarine Blue:  Ultramarine Blue plots cooler and bluer than the more saturated French Ultramarine. Temperature aside, both blues have equal permanence, lightfastness and transparency. Ultramarine Blue is slightly less granular in concentrated washes. For less saturation, sedimentation and cost, use Ultramarine Blue straight, for vibrant crayon-like color or mixed with a cool red for dark, effective neutrals.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 3-Medium Staining
  • Pigment: PB 29

 

Cerulean Blue, Chromium:  Beautiful on its own, and especially so when mixed with a transparent pigment, this sky blue inorganic pigment is granular and medium-light in value. Highly permanent and extremely low-staining, Cerulean Blue creates exciting granulation and settling washes. A drop of Cerulean Blue into a damp wash such as Burnt Sienna creates a halo effect around the more dense Cerulean. This is especially effective when Quinacridone Gold or Quinacridone Burnt Orange are used in the moist underpainting. This technique is great for rendering lichen and Spanish Moss. Add Buff Titanium, Undersea Green and touches of Lunar Black – each a DANIEL SMITH exclusive – and the creative fun truly begins! For a misty landscape or that dusky quality on eggplant, grapes and plums, think Cerulean as a mixer.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Pigment: PB 36

 

Monte Amiata Natural Sienna*:  Bring a natural glow to your palette with this stunning sienna earth tone. Subtle granulation and a delicate transparency make this watercolor especially useful for portraits and landscapes. This low staining pigment is very workable and has excellent lightfastness.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Pigment: PBr 7

 

Transparent Red Oxide: A highly transparent burnt orange loves to mingle with the lamp black, settling in beneath it, mixing with it to create tones of cinnamon and tobacco. Fire seems to dance on the walls as its peach undertones nestle in with the black. Incredibly warm and non-staining, you can create stunning effects. Glaze it over the French Ochre for a warm fireside glow or layer it over itself for a rich and glowing red ochre that has no equal.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Pigment: PR 101
