In 1993, Daniel Smith set out to create a line of watercolors with one goal in mind: to bring the watercolor artist the very best product available. His dream came to fruition with the introduction of a hugely innovative collection of 27 paints that just happened to change the world of watercolors forever. The sheer amount of pigment packed into each tube was exceptional, as was the policy of providing complete product information on each label. Daniel Smith currently offers over 200 different colors, with more in the works every year.
Forbidden by purists, Chinese White is much more than a repair patch. This semi-opaque pure white offers excellent permanency and a medium-high tinting strength. It's great for lightening other colors. Drop and spatter Chinese White into a damp gray wash to describe the moist, mushy snowfalls of the Pacific Northwest's coastal lowlands. I also employ a brushload of Chinese White where water's edge meets snowbanks to indicate melting. For field flowers in spring meadows, a touch of Chinese White into Carbazole Violet helps create clover and other wildflowers. And, of course, you can always use it to paint details and highlights! If the paint works, use it.
