Graham creates fine artist oils in small batches, using his knowledge to bring out the finest color from each pigment! Each color is rich and saturated, with the highest possible mass tone and tinting strength. Most colors are based on a single pigment.
Color Swatch created using heavy application/medium application/50% tint and was applied on acrylic primed canvas (7 oz) material.
Dioxazine Violet is transparent and has very high tinting strength. Concentrated, it paints out nearly black, but it mixes with Titanium White to form birght, opaque tints of purple. PV37 produces slightly grayer tints than PV23.
Dioxazine Violet has good lightfastness. PV37 is considered slightly more lightfast than PV23.
Two molecular variants of Dioxazine Violet, PV23 and PV37, are available. They have similar properties, but mix slightly differently.
Dioxazine Purple, Chromothal Violet.
