We make our Serpentine Genuine Watercolor and Watercolor Stick from the Serpentine mineral we import from Australia. This particular Serpentine mineral variety is an exceptionally beautiful soft green with lavender Stichtite (a purple mineral) inclusions. Once we have ground the Serpentine and removed the unneeded minerals, like the Stichtite, from the matrix, we have our mineral pigment ready for making our Serpentine Genuine Watercolor.
This surprisingly semi-transparent paint is a beautiful, granulating green which in washes allows specks of pale burnt scarlet particles to settle out. These particles add unusual warmth and interest to your landscape and floral paintings. Our Serpentine Genuine is a warm, vigorous green wonderful for painting green apples, young foliage, meadow greens and other sunlit landscapes and leaves.
You can see in the video, how beautifully our DANIEL SMITH Serpentine Genuine paints out.
