Product Description


If texture is what you’re after (which I am) you're gonna love DANIEL SMITH PrimaTek paints! PrimaTek Watercolors mix beautifully with other paints on your palette and bring excitement to the surface of a painting. They are heavier in body and settle into the valleys of your paper leaving behind wonderful granulation and texture. The pigments were carefully selected to give you a wide range of colors and textures you'll find nowhere else. When mixed with other colors the possibilities are endless.??

The PrimaTeks:

  • Rhodonite Genuine, 5ml
  • Jadeite Genuine, 5ml
  • Amethyst Genuine, 5ml
  • Mayan Blue Genuine, 5ml
  • Hematite Genuine, 5ml
  • Piemontite Genuine, 5ml


Pomegranate Demo, By Brenda Swenson

Demonstration includes colors in the Essentials Watercolor Set.

Step 1:
I start with a drawing done with a 2B pencil on Arches 140lb cold press paper. I draw very simply for placement and proportions.

Step 2:
Paint the big shape first. On my palette I make three puddles of paint, New Gamboge, Piemontite Genuine and Rhodonite Genuine. I paint both pomegranates at once with New Gamboge. While the paint is still very wet I add Piemontite Genuine to the shadowed (left) side of the right pomegranate and to the underside of the other. Before the passage has lost its shine I add Rhodonite Genuine to the top of the right pomegranate. Timing is important when working back into a wet area. Once the shine is gone...don't touch, let dry! I begin painting the seeds???

Step 3:
The seeds are painted wet into wet using Rhodonite Genuine as the base color and touches of Amethyst Genuine for the darker seeds. The membrane section is a light value of New Gamboge and Piemontite Genuine.

Step 4:
Cast shadows are often overlooked in paintings and lack excitement. When I paint cast shadows I like to see reflected light and colors in the shadows. I start by painting the overall shadow shape mid-value of French Ultramarine. Before this paint looses it shine I add a small amount of New Gamboge and Rhodonite Genuine to add life and interest.

Step 5:
Next I focus on the form shadows. The form shadows are on the left side and underneath. On my palette I make two puddles of paint, Piemontite Genuine and Rhodonite Genuine. The form shadow is a darker value of the original color. Careful

The colours are beautiful and the granulation is unusually strong. Getting some lovely effects for painting water and skies with these pigments.
