Like its relative cobalt blue, cobalt violet is a superb paint. Dries very quickly due to the cobalt.
It is clean, smooth and cool. It is ephemeral and delicate like a flower, its low tint strength means it needs to be applied cautiously, and in mixes it doesn't shine above its partners, although stunning blue violet mixes can be achieved, and for taking down the chroma of yellows it is a delight.
Obviously with its delicate transparency as a glaze it excels. This particular paint is ground in poppyseed oil which is very clear, its delicate hues are in no way obscured.
Transparent, quick drying, low lightfastness, poppyseed oil.
