DANIELS SMITH PRIMATEK WATERCOLORS

I need the Daniel Smith Primatek collection! Look at all that granulation in all those great earthy tones!

What makes these colors really cool is that they are made from minerals. There are colors made from tiger’s eye, sodalite, lapis lazuli and other rocks.

Its not a super practical buy for me because I’ve got a good color palette going on, but the romanticism of painting with something taken from the ground is really enticing. I’m also drawn to their earthiness. Sometimes when shopping for paint all the colors seem garish because they are meant to be dulled down or washed on thinly. The Primateks have a calmer look, however there is still an intensity in their colors.
