Quinacridone pink is sometimes used as a cool primary red. It is a very intense translucent color. One can thus mix beautiful violet and natural Orangetones, or just as the chilly red in a cold/warm color palette.
In its shade it lies something between PV19 Quinacridone violet and PV19 Quinacridone red, but is slightly lighter than these.
Pure and bright violet tones can be prepared by mixtures with Ultramarine Blue or Phtaloblue.
