Cobalt Violet is a 'classic colour' on the painter's palette it is used to provide the violet/pink/purple element of the colour wheel. It is basically impossible to mix with other hues and given it's subtle tinting power very useful in making subtle colour shifts to other paints.
This particular version is a high chroma, zingy pink/violet and as the name suggests lighter than the standard rich purple hue.
Being lighter and semi-transparent it enables a range of hues from a masstone, mid-value violet to used more thinly pinks with beautiful blueish undertones. It's tints are delightfully vibrant, warm lilacs and pinks.
Pigment rich and smoothly ground, being single pigment and based on Cobalt means it is a fast dryer.

This is a lovely, and quite transparent color. I've used it mostly for glazing and painting colorful flowers. Great for mixing different pinks and purples.
