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.

  • Pigment: PY 53, PY 151, PY 83 | Series: 3
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Opaque
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating

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.

  • Pigment: PV 19 | Series: 2
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Staining: 3-Medium Staining
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating

Wisteria * 

DANIEL SMITH Wisteria, like the blooms of its namesake flowering vine, is a delicate, red leaning lavender. Similar in color to Ultramarine Red but with different properties, this non-granulating and non-staining color paints smoothly and lifts easily. Wonderful for painting orchids and other florals.

  • Pigment: PW 6, PR 122 | Series: 2
  • Lightfastness: II – Very Good
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating

Rose of Ultramarine *

This exciting blend mixes Quinacridone Rose and Ultramarine Blue. The blue settles as the rose floats, creating a vibrant, dimensional purple. For those artist artists who always mix their own purples, this unique, otherwise unattainable separation is worth exploring. Juxtapose Rose of Ultramarine with pure Phthalo Blue for fun and effect.

  • Pigment: PB 29, PV 19 | Series: 1
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Staining: 3-Medium Staining
  • Granulation: Granulating

Moonglow *

Water frees this amazing three-pigment blend to perform miracles. Watch and wait as Anthraquinoid Red floats, Ultramarine Blue settles and Viridian grays the resulting violet color. Selectively blot and lift a surface wash to expose delicate blue-greens. A description of the fascinating light and dark washes can never match a personal experience! Use Moonglow in shadows and as a silhouette pigment and enjoy its reaction to salt application in background washes. Its neutral tinting property makes it effective with almost all the DANIEL SMITH watercolors. Try introducing the Luminescent Interference pigments to areas of wet, damp or dry Moonglow. Look to Undersea Green as a companion pigment. And try a Moonglow sky and long shadows on sunset snow scenes.

  • Pigment: PG 18, PB 29, PR 177 | Series: 2
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Granulation: Granulating

Phthalo Blue (GS)

For cool, clean staining shadows and reflected light on windows, super staining, super transparent Phthalo Blue is a popular pure chroma organic pigment. Mix with Hansa Yellow for luminous greens.

  • Pigment: PB 15:3 | Series: 1
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Staining: 4-High Staining
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating

Lavender *

DANIEL SMITH Lavender is a beautiful periwinkle blue, and quite different from our other blues. This semi-transparent lavender blue has beautiful granulation, and lifts easily. In addition to being an excellent floral color, our Lavender suggests certain shades of faded denim.

  • Pigment: PW 6, PV 15, PB 29 | Series: 2
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Granulation: Granulating

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.

  • Pigment: PBr 7, PB 15 | Series: 1
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Staining: 3-Medium Staining
  • Granulation: Granulating

Serpentine Genuine * (PrimaTek Watercolor)

We bring you an unusually beautiful Serpentine pigment from the land down under. This Australian green-color serpentine is of a variety called Stichtite. A soft stone used cross-culturally for carving amulets used to ward off harm, our newest PrimaTek has no comparison in any known paint palette. This surprising, semi-transparent paint is a good green that develops granulation with specks of burnt scarlet – a great addition to your landscape and floral palette.

  • Pigment: Genuine Serpentine | Series: 4
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Granulation: Granulating

Green Apatite Genuine * (PrimaTek Watercolor)

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.

  • Pigment: Genuine Green Apatite | Series: 3
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Granulation: Granulating

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.

  • Pigment: PO 48 PY 150 | Series: 2
  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent

I really like this paint box. The colours which are new to me, such as moonglow, rose of ultramarine, and shadow violet are fun to use and "inspirational" as the box says. I especially appreciate the the 12 empty pans which I filled with my own tube paints, not all Daniel Smith but other colours in other brands that I regularly use. The order was attended to promptly and arrived in Brisbane in a couple of days. I am very satisfied with both the product and the service.
