New Favorite Violet (2 of 2)!

Scabiosa was (and is) my first love! Birmingham Violets, looked intriguing though? I ordered samples of Waterfront Dusk, River Twilight and Lilac Wind. I was surprised that, for me, Lilac Wind was the standout. I ordered a bottle and have taken to calling it "David"! David is a mournful chap! Then along came Violet Starling (and Frick Building Stained Glass!) - they look lovely too, but too close to distinguish? I threw a sample of Violet Starling in with my next order and was captivated . . . . but isn't it almost a match with David? Yes, it's near enough the same color, yet somehow, to me, the Starling feels more upbeat! Wiping a freshly filled pen on a piece of tissue was the revelation, David has a dusky magenta core, with a blue that comes out in a wash (leaving a clear outline). Violet Starling has a blue core fading out to pink in the wash. For writing, I'm not sure this is such a great distinction (think of an introverted and extroverted version of the same color!), but for sketching these are gorgeous complements! Be prepared to try a variety of nibs and papers, but once you find a combination that works, these are inks with a lot to offer!
