Light Purple is a noble color with baronial influences and was often used for portraits of religious figures or deities. In Domenico del Ghirlandaio’s portrait in the Sistine Chapel, St. Victor I is wearing a Light Purple robe to signify his ordained position and recognized wisdom.

How the color is made: Light Purple is created by mixing very Light Magenta and Dark Violet.

History: Historically, Light Purple was a color that was assigned to religious figures in the church. The color was however not as intense as the Deep Purples that kings and queens wore and was deemed fitting for men of the cloth.
