Daniel Smith’s Mallard Triad celebrates the darling duck that is a welcome site during a visit to the pond or lake. This showy specimen combines the best of colors—the earthy neutrals found in his body feathers offset the regal jewel tones of his head and plumes. Our newest color collection brings three brilliant shades together for stunning swatches of color and rich, natural mixes.

Among the bobbing, waddling and quacking a mallard’s bright beak and feet seem to flash into view. Permanent Orange captures these streaks of color with its saturated, strong quality. Use gem-like Phthalo Green to paint the glowing shimmer of the bird’s head and tail feathers. Indigo is perfect for the darkest blacks and mellows to a soft gray-blue wash to give your mallard shape and form.

Permanent Orange is a bold, true orange falling midway between yellow and red. This warm color is sure to capture attention in your watercolor works. For more natural-looking subjects, temper the brightness of Permanent Orange by mixing with a neutral blue-violet. For a sizzling color statement, let this single-pigment paint stand on its own for fiery results.
