I bought this as a result of a review in the Artist and Illustrator and it's certainly going to have a place in my palette for the future. I usually mix my own greens, but this granulates in such an extraordinary way that it will be really useful. The colour is rich and dark and when flooded with water things and speckles beautifully.

My first experience of Daniel Smith watercolours and they seem to be all I'd expected. Rich strong pigment - and this is a particularly lovely colour. Deborah (Keighley, United Kingdom) on 21 Sep 2015
Lovely paint to use but I was surprised to see that the constituent pigment is different from the Cobalt Violet Deep in 14ml tube. This paint has a much warmer undertone than the Cobalt Violet Deep and this takes a bit of getting used to. I had to add a tiny smidgeon of Cobalt Blue to washes to get the effect that I like.
