The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 26
Daniel Smith calls Undersea Green an "artist’s favorite", and I can certainly see why. It is a medium to high staining pigment combining inorganic French Ultramarine, Blue which settles and granulates, with the organic and transparent Quinacridone Gold that floats on top. In its most concentrated form it is warm and a natural for forest and leafy matter. Add Moonglow, or any of the Ultramarines or Quinacridone to the mix and you get interesting passages of color. Daniel Smith suggests dry brush Undersea Green with Interference Gold.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
