DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolor Triad "Chickadee"

Against a backdrop snow and ice cheerful Chickadees flutter among delicate branches. The season’s sparkling stage makes a wonderful setting to observe the charming habits of one of winter’s iconic birds. With their combination of black, brown and buff the chickadee represents the palette of winter foliage. Add a dash of red for a bold winterberry and a seasonal study takes shape.

The Chickadee Triad combines surprising shades to create texture and balance in a winter painting. Tiger’s Eye Genuine is a granulating earth tone with a natural green bias perfect for soft feathers. Monte Amiata Natural Sienna adds warmth and subtle texture to branches and the bird’s delicate plumage. Perylene Scarlet brings a bold pop of color to your balance the whites and neutrals of winter.


Chickadee Triad

Tiger's Eye Genuine is ground from shimmering golden-brown Tiger’s Eye, a member of the quartz family. This PrimaTek pigment is a wonderful neutral shade that is just a touch olive in tone. This green cast allows for mixing with trio-mate Perylene Scarlet to create bold, nearly black, browns. In washes, Tiger’s Eye Genuine shows its natural tendency toward granulation with deep brown patterns of collected pigment in the texture of your watercolor paper. Use this quality to your advantage for texture in branches, shadows and feathers.

Chickadee Triad

Monte Amiata Natural Sienna has slightly more refined qualities than standard Raw Sienna. Its wonderful transparency makes for less grainy mixtures and allows washes to glow on the page. Use it to warm Tiger’s Eye Genuine or to tone the bright shade of Perylene Red in this palette to create natural looking berries and branches in your painting. On its own, Monte Amiata Natural Sienna can add delicate warmth to the underbelly of your bird or warm sunlight to your snow.

Chickadee Triad

Perylene Scarlet is a powerful pigment that brings a rush of color to your work. This shade is a favorite year-round for painting brilliant flowers, rich autumn leaves and the bright red berries of winter. Subtle granulation balances well with the other pigments in this textural palette. At full strength Perylene Scarlet is a dark red that becomes the backbone of the rich brown-black that is created in mixtures with Tiger’s Eye Genuine. Soften with a wash of water to reveal a surprisingly mellow pink shade.
