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

Alvaro’s Fresco Grey “A very powerful and true hue, with no artificial look to it. Passionate and mysterious, great to evoke distant elements of any kind even the unknown…I love the hue.”

Alvaro’s Fresco and Caliente 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
