    Red, Yellow & Blue is one of the 5 ways to make brown.

    The others are: Red&Green, Blue&Orange, Yellow&Purple and Black&Red.

    .................p.s. Black&Yellow make Olive Green. : )

    Well Alizarin Red is kinda purple-ish anyway. Mix that with a blue and see what happens. Add a lil bit of white to it to lighten it up. I haven't painted in a while tho... what kind of blues are you using? That could be throwing you off. You should try French UltraMarine blue with a red and see what happens.
