Organic – Deep Purple has tremendous use in all aspects of painting but should be used with caution by new artists as it has a tint power only matched by the Phthalocyanines.

When combined with whites it produces remarkable shades.

Also, a slight addition to transparent yellows, such as Indian Yellow, produces some extraordinary results that one can only describe as dark yellow, which as a concept can be a little strange.
