Rochester, NY is known for its abundance of lilacs in the spring, one of the reasons we are known as the Flower City. It would have been easy to call Dioxazine Purple Light a name like Lilac since that is what it looks like. The opacity of this paint keeps it from being a delicate color, but it is not bold either. This is a unique color to the Enkaustikos palette.
Pigment: PV23/PW6, Carbazole Dioxazine, Titanium Dioxide Rutile
