To check out the colors I use, go to
and see some great combos and mixes.
And check out the Daniel Smith catalog online at
to see all DS colors.
I tried to photograph and also scan the 4 violets I use but they came out too blue each time no matter what I set my white balance on. I couldn't match the color I get when I put the paint to paper.
I use Carbazole Violet (Semi-transparent and medium staining),
Cobalt Violet Deep and Ultramine Violet (both Transparent but granulating and low staining),
and I have Quinacridone Violet (which is more a reddish violet) and is transparent and very staining.
What's your favorite purple out of the tube - or what is your favorite mix of red and blue to get a good, clean purple?
