New colour by DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolour McCracken Black 15ml tube. McCracken Black is a versatile black. It can produce a range of neutral grays that are ideal for creating a realistic look to metal objects and a remarkable depth in a dark background, that is inspired by the Dutch painters of the 16th and 17th century.  Master Artist Laurin McCracken worked with DANIEL SMITH Chemists to develop a black that is neutral, not blue or brown. One to which he can add small amounts of colour to, to make it warm or cool, so that it can change and enhance the feel of a painting when desired. It has a degree of transparency as he often paints with a very dark background over an underpainting. McCracken Black is a complex black, with a very low level of granularity so the that the smooth surfaces of metal (like polished silver), in a still life can appear as realistic as possible. 

McCracken Black has Lightfastness: 1- Excellent, is low staining level 2-, has a low level of granularity and is transparent.
