Purple and Dioxazine Purple

The purpose of having a dull Purple when Dioxazine Purple is so clean and bright is that some artists find Dioxazine Purple difficult to control because it is so vivid, while the dull Purple is much more tonal and makes an easily mixed base colour for shadows in landscapes.
