The rich, warm colors of autumn exclaim the fruition of a glorious growing season. As summer comes to a close fall is ushered in with bountiful baskets of fruits, vegetables and nuts. Daniel Smith’s new Harvest Cornucopia Triad celebrates a plentiful crop and the spectrum of autumnal hues it displays.
Paint the changing trees or a bushel of produce with this three color collection. The mature character of late season leaves and frost-nipped greens are perfectly captured with earthy Green Apatite Genuine. Perylene Scarlet adds a dash of brilliant red on ripe tomatoes and shining apples. Quinacridone Gold captures the amber colored light that ignites the autumn landscape with rich, warm tones.
Green Apatite Genuine a PrimaTek pigment, is rich in color and character. At full strength this dark color is nearly black. Mix with water for a range of tones that begin with deep, mossy green and stretch to light and delicate jade. Green Apatite Genuine’s natural mineral origins give this watercolor a dramatic granulating quality as patterns of dark sediments gather in the pockets of your watercolor paper.DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolor Triad 'Harvest Cornucopia'
