A little research on the web turned up the following information about it: low strength as a tinting color; extremely light fast; best used as a glazing color; when mixed with white turns a nice pure violet that can't be duplicated by mixing reds and blues.It's also hard to find— the only manufacturer I can find who makes the true hue, not a synthetic, is Maimeri.
Lately I've been thinking that the Rose Bowl painting needed some violet shadows, so I added some of the Ultramarine Red to the mix:

Also put in a lot of time on this one; it's very frustrating but at least the colors and shapes are getting closer to where they need to be.
