Alizarin Crimson (PR83) 5ml Tube, DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolor
A beautiful bluish-red pigment from the transparent staining family, Alizarin Crimson is listed on the basic palette of a vast majority of artists.
Intense and dark in value, Alizarin Crimson mixes cleanly with most pigments to create dark mixtures and warm neutrals. A combination of Aureolin (Cobalt Yellow) and French Ultramarine with Alizarin renders a surprising range of other colors resembling everything from Burnt Sienna and Umber to Payne's Gray, while Alizarin Crimson with French Ultramarine creates an intense purple.
