Looking for PR206 in oils

I hope somebody here can help me... In watercolor, PR 206 (Quinacridone Pyrrolidine Red) has become a staple on my palette. They describe it as a maroon or bordeaux red, but it's not; it's really on the warmer side of red, as you can see in the swatch. It is much redder than transparent red oxide or burnt sienna though. Winsor Newton calls this Brown Madder in their watercolor line, but there is no equivalent in their lineup of oil paints. In oils, their Brown Madder is PBR7, an entirely different beast, as you can also see from the swatch.

So, do any of you happen to know a brand and color of PR206 that matches the transparent qualities and characteristics of the Brown Madder in the WN watercolor lineup? (Daniel Smith also makes a similar color in watercolors, but alas they don't make oils.)

Many thanks for your help!

Jamie

Re: Looking for PR206 in oils

Hi,
I do not work with watercolours, so I have no idea to what extent to compare them, but I do know PR206 is less common in tubed oils but available as a single pigment oil from Sennelier 699 ("Permanent alizarin crimson deep), Schmincke Mussini 343 ("Wurzelkrappton") and Williamsburg 855 ("Quinacridone brown"). My list is not up to date entirely but maybe you want to check them out. Just check it out for the colour swatches at dickblick to see if it helps.

Many thanks for pointing me in that direction! I got some great input from folks in the oils forum too, for those who want to take a peek.
