Quinacridone Purple, a DANIEL SMITH Watercolor!
congratulations to Casia, who guessed the right answer and won our draw!
Quinacridone Purple is a rich, powerful and juicy purple with a slight reddish cast. It's nongranulating, so washes are smooth and controlled and it mixes beautifully. A luscious, versatile color. Quinacridone watercolors flow beautifully for extremely smooth washes, have incredible depth of color and can be lifted easily while still wet. They're exceptionally strong yet transparent, ideal for glazing, and many artists use them as vibrant replacements for earth colors. Understandably, they've been very popular colors since their introduction people just love them!
