This page is dedicated to dioxazine purple. It isn't one of my favorite colors, but it is always present on my oil painting palette. I like using if for shadows, and I love mixing it with transparent orange which produces a lovely golden color.
I featured a photo of one of my favorite paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago: Gaston La Touche's "Pardon in Brittany." The light and shadows in the painting took my breath away.
Until next time...
