Dioxazine Purple

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...
