Eric Wiegardt
“As a professional watercolorist of 30 years, I use only the finest watercolors. Light fastness and pigment saturation is of upmost importance. The creamy consistency of the DANIEL SMITH water colors allows me to load the brush with multiple colors at once for absolutely beautiful washes of rich color. I am unable to do this with hard, or even stiff pigments. DANIEL SMITH water colors are formulated to stay moist over a long period of time so there is little wastage: a great breakthrough in pigment development!” —Eric Wiegardt AWS-DF, NWS
