Seattle

New Daniel Smith Colors

Last Sunday, I was fortunate to have my husband take me on a little day trip to Seattle. I had a wonderful time walking around Capitol Hill, delighting in the architecture of some of the homes near Volunteer Park, and also simply taking in the beauty of the newly arrived spring.

 Since we were headed there, I decided that I wanted to stop by the Daniel Smith store. After all, I love Daniel Smith watercolors and I had wanted to visit their store for a couple of years. The staff members were all extremely kind. I decided to get a couple of 5ml watercolors, Raw Umber and Undersea Green, since they were a good deal. At checkout I asked if they had a dot sampler of the new colors that recently came out, and while they didn’t have one handy, they immediately offered to make one on the spot for me, which I really appreciated.

A very nice makeshift dot sampler, as you can see. Thank you, Daniel Smith! I especially like the Wisteria and the Payne's Blue-Gray. What do you think about these new colors?
