One of the most asked Question over the last Weeks was the Question about my favourite Colors by Daniel Smith or which Colors I would suggest to start with. So I decided to share my favourite Colors, the Colors I do not want to be without, with you and I did set up my own personal Top Ten Daniel Smith Pallette. In the Video I share about my favourite Colors, why I picked them and some more useful Information for Beginners on how to use the Watercolors from the Tube etc. , . . so I hope you will enjoy the Video and it is useful for you . . .
Picking just a few (and the right Colors) is not easy and seems like an unmanageable task especially for Beginners . . . Daniel Smith provides this awesome Color Chart with small Samples of each Color they have in their Range . . . that really helps to pick your own, personal favourites . . . so if you can get your hands on them, I would definitely suggest to get them . . . you will refer back to them whenever you want to purchase new Colors to expand your Palette, plus it helps to keep track of the Colors you already own.
My Top Ten (plus 2) Watercolor Palette
So . . . my personal Favourites Palette using Daniel Smith Watercolors would consist of the folowing Colors: New Gamboge Yellow, Quinacridone Sienna, Rhodonite Genuine, Quinacridone Magenta, Imperial Purple, French Ultramarine, Phtalo Blue, Mayan Dark Blue, Sap Green, Hematite Burnt Scarlet Genuine, Bloodstone and Lunar Black
