I post this on my other topic, I dont know, it seems like PR209 beat PV19 when come to making purple XD
I dont have PR122, so I cant compare with that..
PV19 is the middle and PR209 is the last color.
However, I am using Winsor and Newton Cotman Permanent Rose (PV19) while I'm using Holbein Quin Scarlet (PR209).. so it's a student grade paint vs an artiest grade paint... maybe thats why PR209 is beating PV19 when come to purple..
