The Science of Color – Adding Clean Violet to Paint

Share on:

Before exploring the best color blends for violet, it should be said that red is not a primary color and there is no blue, but colors that resemble the primary colors of printing ink, which are magenta and cyan. These two pigments resemble permanent rose and plant blue in acrylics and oil paints, and can therefore be used as ‘primary red’ and ‘primary blue’. These two colors make up the essential ingredients if the artist is to mix a clean purple color on the palette. How to Mix Clear Purple

Violet (or violet) is located between blue and red on the color wheel. For this reason, violet can go either way when it comes to its bias, and that is violet-red or violet-blue. Mix equal amounts of primary red and blue (magenta and cyan) and the purple will have a slight bias either way. Violet can be either pale or dark, or can display varying degrees of purity from bright purple to somewhat violet. Incorporating the necessary art pigments to the color mix will enable the artist to mix any required violet.

Best blue to purple mix

If a clean, bright purple is the target, then blue and red colors that are biased towards each other are best. Ultramarine is a purple-blue. Permanent rose is also the perfect companion for a pure purple mix. Many other blue and red art pigments are biased towards each other and will therefore produce a clean purple mixture. In terms of the blue counterpart, the following would be appropriate: phthalo blue, Indianthreen blue, cobalt and Winsor blue (the red shade).
