Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolours - Viridian Series 2 15ml

Seldom used at full tube strength, this transparent non-staining pigment is an excellent glazing pigment and a portrait painter's essential. It's a cool blue-green useful in mixing without staining other pigment particles and for soft edges in floral work. It is the secret hidden ingredient in Moonglow. Viridian can quickly modify reds, but in combination with the Quinacridones, its versatility has multiplied.

Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolours - Yellow Ochre Series 1 15ml
Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolours - Yellow Ochre Series 1 15ml

While its mixing uses are limited, Yellow Ochre works well with transparent pigments. Try mixing transparent, medium-tinting Yellow Ochre with equally transparent, medium-tinting Viridian. Somewhat neutral, Yellow Ochre reacts beautifully with Cerulean Blue when spattered into the damp paint. Yellow Ochres tend to be opaque or whitened in other brands - DANIEL SMITH Yellow Ochre is the best!
