In 1993, Dan set out to create a line of professional watercolours with one goal in mind: to create the finest watercolours. After extensive formulation and artist testing, the first 27 DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolours were introduced to the market with exciting results. The sheer amount of pigment packed into each tube was exceptional.
In 2020 Dan has launched a range of hand-poured 1/2 pan watercolours in 45 colours.
Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolours are made by hand in Seattle, Washington. This superior-quality watercolour line includes historical hues, amazing earths, and some of the brightest and boldest quinacridones ever formulated.
