The Color Purple

Red & blue makes purple, Right?

Well, yes, but...

You've got your cadmium reds, napthol reds, quinacridone reds...
You've got your phaltho blue, ultramarine blue, prussian blue, cerelean blue...

After all these decades of painting & color mixing, I finally found a combination for a really great purple: alizarian crimson & paynes gray. Yep!
