Alvaro's Caliente and Fresco Greys, as he describes them, are about;"...magnetism, fury, energy...power. You know greys... create a feeling of danger, emotion, passion... mystery...evoke things that are unknown...darkness. I use these greys to create a painting that has a magnetism...energy, mystery, passion...something to discover, entering the unknown, darkness. Both of these colors have just this type of feel to me."-Alvaro Castagnet
Part of Daniel Smith's Signature Series, Alvaro's Caliente Grey, a smooth, warm velvety grey on its own, mixes wonderfully with other colors toning them down and adding warmth. Alvaro's Caliente Grey is semi-transparent, non-granulating, low staining and has excellent lightfastness.
