Purple or violet is a secondary colour that is mixed with two primary colours. It is difficult to get consistent results so I just buy a big basic purple. This tube is Basics Dioxazine Purple. It saves time and frustration. Likely one can buy red violet and blue violet as well but then the art budget and the storage limitations are strained. Mixing more or less red or blue gives the derivatives. Sort of...
One can see that 'it is complicated'! lol So sticking to the KIS students principle, I will stick with the simpler 12 colour colour wheel and buy a big tube of purple to which I'll add warm or cool reds depending on the temperature of my story!
