Day2- trying out 2 new Daniel Smith tubes


its day 2 of my blog-

yesterday I was trying out two new very popular Daniel Smith tones — Piemontite and Goethite- brown ochre

Imaginary rocky landscape- playing with Daniel Smith Granulating colors

Piemontite Genuine – A very versatile granulating deep ruddy violet Primatek color

and Goethite- Brown ochre – is a dark tea color in mass tone and washes out to a rich warm tan, its highly granulating with pools of light and dark in every brushstrokes.

colours used


I am also smitten with a sennelier color – Turquoise green – absolutely stunning vibrant greenish blue.. its like teal blue of Daniel Smith… if I am not making any mistake.

here I wish to mention some more granulating colors by Daniel Smith

Green Apatite Genuine – highly crazy granulation. a fresh yellow green to deep olive.. a single tube can has that range. you can actually see the brown settles out of vibrant green.. great for texture and forests..

yesterday I went to see an Exhibition at Karnataka Chitrakala Parisath , organized by one of my artist friend and curator – Sarbani Chatterjee.. what a feast of eyes.. that was. its on till Sunday.

anyway,  this is another quick sketches of my daughter drinking lemon water, by using the same  DIY palette.

.. that’s all for today. happy Saturday.
