Product Description

Quinacridone Purple is a rich, powerful and juicy purple with a slight reddish cast. It’s non-granulating, 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!

A lovely true purple

Posted by Sheri W on November 28, 2018

I love this how this purple dried back, not too much greying and not too translucent. Daniel Smith paints are excellent quality. They look and feel beautiful, which sets up this beginning artist for success. My opinion is that Daniel Smith paint is worth the price. Daniel Smith paint is amazing to use from the tube and/or rewet very well from my palette.
