This deep, moody colour is perfect wherever shadows are required and creates interesting grey-violets when used in washes.

Artist’s Notes: Tyrian Cobalt Purple is a muted, dark cool grey violet incredibly useful in rendering stormy skies and moody atmospheric scenes with clouds and rain. It is also helpful in evening scenes and seascapes.
