With it's origins in watercolour, this hue was invented by William Payne . This particular version is a master paint maker's personal creation, not to be found like this anywhere else! Semi-opaque.
"Master Paint maker David Coles’ favoured blend. Entering into the oil colour lexicon in the early to mid 19th century, Payne’s Grey has since been composed by combining various blues, reds, blacks or earths. This modern take has no ochre incorporated, producing a uniquely exquisite violet cast."
