“Won’t you walk with me awhile, put a smile on my face….gonna keep coming back again. There’s no denyin’ can’t keep away from the flame.”   My thoughts about the watercolor paint, Cobalt Teal Blue!

The Flame of Cobalt Teal Blue


However,  I borrowed that verse from Def Leppard to be honest with his song “Can’t Keep Away From the Flame.”



Watercolor Paints in Blue Aqua

This watercolor paint color  cobalt teal blue pg50 by Daniel Smith, is so peaceful, restful and calming  – its like a mini spa retreat just painting with it.


The clarity and the smoothness is simply,  divine.

Watercolor Colors Used

I’ve just used 3 – cobalt teal blue,  naples yellow and indanthrone blue –  all 3 were Daniel Smith watercolors.

With these specific colors…. I really do strongly prefer the Daniel Smith brand to the dozens +  others I have tried over the years.   And I just won’t use the other brands when using these three colors.

The greens were mixed from the naples yellow and the blues.
