blue purple

The paint colour BLUE - PURPLE  (VIOLET)

It is one of the tertiary colours (mixing blue and purple paint together)


Tint – add white to make a cool mauve

Lower value – add shade/black to make a slate purple

tone - add some contrasting colour (orange yellow) to make a grey/violet

orange/taupe, grey – add more contrasting colour

When you mix red, green and blue light together in equal proportions you create white light.

To make violet light add 1 part red light and 2 parts blue light

We think blue purple has a relaxed energy.
