I have a new favorite color: Raw Umber Violet from Cheap Joe's American Journey line of watercolor paints.  This is a rich color that blends well with most of my other favorites such as Apricot, Peachy Keen, Orchid and Periwinkle; the blues of Ultramarine, Cobalt, Manganese and Andrews' Turquoise as well as Yellow Ochre to name a few.  Yesterday, in the studio, I had fun mixing colors with this and learning its character.  Raw umber violet is a cool, staining, transparent color with "very good" lightfastness rating.  I tested a 15 ml tube and now will order the 37 ml tube.  This is another plus of the American Journey line - 104 colors available in 37 ml tubes reasonably priced.
