Daniel Smith


DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolors made their debut in 1993 announcing:

“DANIEL SMITH Finest Watercolors – A classic watercolor of unsurpassed purity and permanence.” The vision in the formulation of a new line of watercolors was twofold;
* First and foremost, to produce watercolors that are the best in lightfastness and permanence.
* Second, to offer a selection of truly unique colors.”
