DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolor Triad 'Autumn Acorn'

As the days become shorter, and the breezes cooler, artists everywhere prepare their palettes for the cacophony of color that is autumn. Set the stage for stunning results with Daniel Smith’s Autumn Acorn Triad. This three-color collection is the best and brightest of the rich and ruddy tones of the season. From single leaves to entire stands of colorful trees this triad sings of fall.

Used alone or in concert these watercolors create a symphony of vibrant hues. Sap Green is the rich shade of leaves at the height of summer, just before they change their colors. Indian Yellow is the golden glare of a low setting sun turning the tips of leaves a fiery gold. Garnet Genuine is an earthy red that gives a scarlet streak to falling foliage. Let them mix and mingle in an autumn dance across your watercolor painting.


Autumn Acorn Triad

Indian Yellow is the quintessential color of summer—think bright marigolds and fiery sunflowers. Glowing transparency and smooth texture make this shade ideal for adding highlights and warm glazes. Used full strength this watercolor is nearly orange; add water for vibrancy and light. Tame this shade by mixing with its trio-mates for complex neutrals and balanced oranges.

Autumn Acorn Triad

Garnet Genuine, a PrimaTek pigment, is ground from its namesake gemstone. This rich, ruddy scarlet adds a natural touch of red to the autumn landscape. Garnet Genuine’s granulating properties add texture and character to leaves and acorns. As washes dry, they reticulate creating the interesting and random patterns found in nature. Mix with trio-mates to bring this effect to a variety of shades.

Autumn Acorn Triad

Sap Green one of our best selling shades, is a powerful blend of Quinacridone Deep Gold and Phthalo Green. This color combination results in a bold shade of green that is consistent and reliable for realistic botanical paintings. This mossy shade can be made deeper with additions of Garnet Genuine; take it from rich green all the way to a neutral brown with this mixture. Additions of Indian Yellow result in bright spring green.
