I read a lot about paint quality and composition, and just lately Daniel Smith has been emerging as a serious contender to W&N, so I was very pleased to find them available in the UK from Ken Bromely.
I am so glad I tried them - they present the most beautiful, jewel like tones, and their pigment strength seems much stronger than W&N - meaning that you can do more with less paint. Some of the marketing spiel is a little romantic, but they are a joy to use, and have completely won me over. I am gradually replacing my entire palette with these. Try them - I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Lucy (Cardiff) on 27 Jul 2011
I had heard abou Daniel Smith watercolours for a while now. I decided to give it a go!
Thanks to your website, I could see how each colour behaved on paper.
I chose the one that appeared to behave the way I like watercolour.
I was not disapointed at all. They are bright, strong colours, they might be expensive but I do not need a lot at a time to work with. firstname.lastname@example.org (Hythe, United Kingdom) on 29 Oct 2012
Not only do the tubes hold more paint but so many of the colours react in a fabulous way that the painting paints itself, very exciting product! Christine Court (Newton Abbot, United Kingdom) on 3 Apr 2012
