“Quin” (quinacridone)” colors are synthetic pigments originally created for automobile paint. They are brilliant, transparent, light fast and come in hues not readily available in traditional colors. Paint with unconventional tools and quinacridone colors for a fresh, bright picture.

Create a painting by making a light pencil sketch on watercolor paper, wetting an area, and flooding the area with two colors. Use a credit card or rib to push the paint away from areas that will be light values and toward areas of darker values. Tip the paper to flow the paint as desired. Use the credit card edge, the twig, and straw to add lines and details.

One 22 x 30 sheet of Arches 140lb cold pressed watercolor paper

From the DANIEL SMITH Website regarding their Quinacridone Colors:
Quinacridones combine the power of the staining pigments with the luminosity of the transparents. They flow beautifully for extremely smooth washes, have incredible depth of color and can be lifted easily while still wet.
Understandably, they’ve been very popular colors since their introduction. People just love them. No other colors have both the intensity and transparency of the quinacridone family. They are synthetic organic pigments, created in the world’s most advanced color laboratories. Miniscule pigment particles are exceptionally uniform in size and shape, which translates to unfailing behavior in the paint.

Developed initially for use in automotive paints, DANIEL SMITH was the first manufacturer to realize their potential for artists. Perfect for glazing and layering, Quinacridones retain their brilliance on drying. Rich golds, oranges, pinks, reds and violets are intense colors with extreme lightfastness that will super-charge your palette.
