Abstract Minerals

Watercolor 16″ x 20″ Matted Unframed


Width : 50 cm
Height : 40 cm




This painting is a rework of an older one that I painted over 10 years ago. The original painting was done with the Daniel Smith Art Supplies’ Primatek watercolor paints. I decided to continue with this idea using only the Primatek paints. Hence, “Abstract Minerals” was born.

From the Daniel Smith website:

“Daniel Smith hired a mineralogist to travel the globe in search of other exciting natural pigments.

Finding these minerals involves Indiana Jones-worthy journeys by plane, jeep and even mule to remote locations, identifying high-quality veins of ore and then negotiating procurement from local miners. The large minerals or “massive” as they are called are then processed into pigment to reveal the color within. From this pigment, the Daniel Smith chemist and paint makers blend it with the perfect ratio of medium, grind and re-grind it to bring out the natural beauty of each color.”

The yellow is the only paint that is not from the Primatek series as there is no yellow as of yet. The other colors used were Garnet Genuine, Bronzite Genuine, Natural Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Genuine, and Natural Amazonite Genuine. You can learn more about the Primatek paints from the Daniel Smith website.
