Alvaro’s Caliente Grey 15 ml Tube – DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolor

Alvaro’s Caliente Grey, “is a terrific hue, very powerful, excellent to create strong and warm paintings.  In monochrome this wonderful Grey is perfect to achieve a powerful atmosphere with amazing glow. This color is also perfect to add dramatic highlights and shadows.”

Alvaro’s Caliente and Fresco Greys, as he describes them, are about;

“…magnetism, fury, energy…power.  You know greys… create a feeling of danger, emotion, passion… mystery…evoke things that are unknown…darkness.  I use these greys to create a painting that has a magnetism…energy, mystery, passion…something to discover, entering the unknown, darkness.  Both of these colors have just this type of feel to me.”

-Alvaro Castagnet
