Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors are formulated to meet and exceed the highest industry standards, every batch is analyzed for its performance qualities – lightfastness, color value, tinting strength, clarity, vibrancy, undertone, particle size, density, and viscosity. Paint everything you can imagine with vibrant and consistent Extra Fine colors that can be easily mixed for even more variations.
Warm violet-red, this slightly granular, super-staining vat pigment is one of Daniel Smith’s greatest creations. Anthraquinoid Red is bold and dashing. Deep and cool enough for a variation on shadow tones, this impressive red-violet has an amazing range. Mix with water to achieve a whisper of cool red perfect for rosy skies and blushing cheeks. A transparent color, Anthraquinoid Red glazes beautifully for added richness and depth. Anthraquinoid Red offers artists a vibrant, luminous pigment that retains its excellent permanency rating even in thin washes.
