As cool autumn breezes scatter away the last days of summer a brilliant display of color forms in the forest canopy. Daniel Smith’s new Autumn Grove Triad is a contemplative collection of color perfectly suited to a seasonal study of fall foliage. While we reach for sweaters and mittens the trees shed their summer garb in a fanfare of striking color. Paint stunning silhouettes of trees and the fluttering of falling leaves as the dappled light of autumn comes into play.
Carmine is the deepest red available—perfect for the rich tones of the forest in fall. Slightly deeper than Alizarin Crimson, Carmine displays a similar blue bias and has the added advantage of permanency. Use at full strength for dark mahogany shadows or lighten with water for ruby-colored foliage. Start with small amounts in tints and mixtures—Carmine is strong, saturated and ideal for artists who love red.
