OAW Green/Lilac on D.VIIs

Ok, this might seem pretty elementary or just ignorant--you know, "well duh!"
But I'd like to know if the green/lilac (or mauve) paint used on the later Albatros D.IIIs and D.V/D.Vas wings was the very same paint used for the OAW D.VII for its painted camouflage on the radiator, nose panels and axle wing.
Thanks to all--
Sincerely, Lyle

Not the same.

Hello Lyle:
From my studies, what was used on the Alb.D.III(OAW) & Alb.D.Va(OAW) wings and empennage was slightly darker reddish lilac than lilac used on the Fok.D.VII(OAW) cowlings and axle wing, which was lighter and greyer. The dark green I would say was the same.
Blue Lyle,
