A dark, muting color somewhere between maroon and purple. Botanical artists use it for deep floral shadows. With its leafy counterpart, Perylene Green, it mixes up a dark black.
After swapping out options for a dark magenta last week, I found that I had stuck too close to home and chosen colors too similar to my primary magenta. So, today, I’m comparing my favorite of those options – Bordeaux (PV32) – with two strikingly dark purple colors: Perylene Violet (PV29) and Carbazole Violet (PV23).
