Mars Violet Deep is a soft brown oil color with a hint of warm red/purple. Use it to paint trunks of regal redwoods, or the shadows of fireplace brick in a dark cabin. For a more unconventional subject, look to the stars above. This color is one of many you'll need to paint the surface of planet Mars, or the armor of the Roman god that gave the planet its name. No historical battlefield scene would be complete without this color dabbed on the arms of wounded soldiers, or adding a fierce edge to their eyes.
Whether it's for a romantic portrait of a girl with auburn hair, or a still life featuring an antique grandfather clock, you'll find the warm, natural hue of this paint brings life to the canvas.
