Pale Violet

Adorable for any landscape painter Pale Violet adds vibrancy to any sky. Those confusing violet shadows we all see in clouds, which are hard to express, are now made easily achievable with this colour.

Pale Violet is a wonderful addition to my range of colours. It is made from three highly stable, highly reliable and highly lightfast pigments. Although these pigments are available in pure pigment form in my range artists always tell me they can’t achieve quite the same vibrancy when mixed together in their studio.

For the portrait artist my Pale Violet also allows them to achieve interesting shadow combinations, for example as a complimentary to create vibrancy in greys. Pale Violet has an obvious place for still life, room interior and modern artists. Enjoy!

Some people have suggested there should be a health warning on them, “Highly Addictive” 🙂
Happy Painting!

Hi Mary,

I would recommend Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White Number 2, Yellow Ochre Deep, Pthalo Green Yellow Shade, Emerald Green, either Venetian or Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber.

I have tried to keep to the lower series to keep the price low and therefore give him more colour options, if you would like to push the boat out a bit then do come back to me and I can recommended colors of a higher series.

Best Wishes,

M
