DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolors - classic watercolors of unsurpassed purity and permanence. The vision in the formulation of DANIEL SMITH watercolors was twofold;
- First and foremost, to produce watercolors that are the best in lightfastness and permanence.
- Second, to offer a selection of truly unique colors.
DANIEL SMITH Watercolors are formulated to meet and exceed the highest industry standards for the manufacture of artist’s paints, and every batch made is tested and analyzed for its performance qualities.
DANIEL SMITH is truly the worldwide leader of watercolors for artists with 240+ beautiful colors in the 15ml watercolors, the most of any manufacturer. Many are traditional colors relied upon by all artists, and there are many “truly unique” colors made only by DANIEL SMITH that have become so important to watercolor artists.
PrimaTek Watercolors are made from minerals, often semi precious minerals, that have been ground into pigments, mixed with gum arabic (the binder) and milled into PrimaTek Watercolors. The first was Lapis Lazuli Genuine in 1998, since then, many more have been added such as Amethyst Genuine, Piemontite Genuine and Serpentine Genuine. Most of these colors have wonderful granulating effects that some artists have called “magical”.
Luminescent Watercolors have special optical effects perfect for subjects that have a sparkle, sheen, or reflective glow like the iridescence of hummingbird feathers or the sheen of metals.
Cadmium Hues, DANIEL SMITH has developed safe and vibrant Cadmium Hues with the density and richness of cadmium colors without the cadmium pigment. Virtually identical in color to their namesakes, they are cleaner in mixtures and much stronger in tints. The working properties – staining power, semi-transparency and excellent lightfastness – are nearly identical to those of the low-soluble cadmium colors DANIEL SMITH previously manufactured.
Some unique colors are created exclusively by DANIEL SMITH like Cascade Green, Green Gold and Moonglow. DANIEL SMITH also finds unusual pigments to make colors like Mayan Red, Lunar Blue and Enviro-Friendly Red Iron Oxide to provide more choices for artists. Other colors are from pigments DANIEL SMITH has sourced, often from very specific locations, colors like Burgundy Yellow Ochre, Monte Amiata Natural Sienna and Roasted French Ochre.
DANIEL SMITH Watercolors are a favorite of artists all over the world, from professional artists to the beginning watercolorists because of the beautiful colors, consistent performance and lasting color or lightfastness.
DANIEL SMITH Watercolors are packed with high quality pigments using pure gum arabic as the binder – no fillers. For each color, DANIEL SMITH selects the perfect grind to yield particle sizes that maximize the qualities inherent in the pigment, balancing maximum pigment load with minimum vehicle content.

I feel quality paints are so worth it. Years ago I made the mistake of using cheap stuff and know now the money I thought I was saving while I practiced, I didn't save because I wasted my time with products that faded and flaked off the paper. You time is worth money too, so invest in good artist quality paints in the beginning. Just start with a few and you can expand with time. If you think your just learn with the cheap paints your not because they don't mix the same as quality pigments.
I have a few go to brands in my palette and Daniel Smith is one of the great ones.
The yellow makes for a gorgeous color on its own or mixed with other colors for a brilliant payoff. I often use this yellow with blue to make my own green variations and they come out beautifully. In addition, I have found that quite often, Amazon will have these paints less expensive than if you were to buy them from an art retailer. Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed!
*Great color payoff
If you're like me and you've been on the hunt for the perfectly balanced palette, trust me when I say: New Gamboge is waiting for you.
There are a lot of yellows out there, but this one is the perfect balance between warm and cool yellow. It blends beautifully with almost every other color known to man and it's insanely beautiful on its own. My only concern is that it's a very "current" color, meaning it's in heavy use by many talented and well-known artists. That's a double-edged sword because there's a chance it could be faddish, but it's also a plus because it feels very modern and current when used appropriately.
9 times out of 10, this is my go-to yellow for almost any painting as a standalone color, or when I'm mixing browns and oranges.
This Sugilite is a beautiful, warm toned purplish grey with a beautiful shimmer. Transferred it from the tube to a pan and it dried beautifully.
Already one of my favorites!
This New Gamboge mixes so smoothly, I can make any number of different colors.
Should be in any watercolorists paint box!
