Ultramarine Violet 50ml

In stock

Rublev Colours Ultramarine Violet Oil paint offers a unique violet shade that is very clean, bright, and excellent ability to whites “whiter.” It is semi-transparent to visible light and transparent to Near Infrared (NIR), hence it is a “cool” pigment, but its cool performance is highly dependent on the substrate and type of paint. Ultramarine Violet is a transparent, fine-grained color with high tinting strength.

Ultramarine Violet Oil Paint

This ultramarine violet is ground in linseed oil without additives to change the effect of the pigment and oil mixture. As a result, the paint is long producing slightly stringy brushmarks due to the hydrophilic nature of ultramarine. 


Ultramarine Violet is a synthetic inorganic pigment composed of a complex silicate of sodium and aluminum with sulfur, or sodium aluminum sulfosilicate. Ultramarine violet is made using the same process as ultramarine blue but is mixed with ammonium chloride, heated to 200–250° C., and exposed to air for four days until the violet color develops. Other methods are also used to produce ultramarine violet.

Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artist Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.

All images of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors, the results you get may vary.

Color Swatch Note: The color swatch was created with a thick application (left side) of color and a tint (right side) made with equal parts of color and titanium white and applied on acrylic primed cotton canvas.

Drawdown Note: The image of the "drawdown" contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mil (0.006 inch) thickness applied to a standard test card for the purposes of examining color consistency, opacity, and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color full strength (mass tone), on the left, and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns is scraped to show undertones.
