There are two trains of thought here;
If your talking real WWI aircraft then it would be post summer 1917 Albatros D.III ( OAW built ) and some (about half) Albatros D.V & Va types. The two toned painted wing camouflage of these birds had dk green and mauve (pinkish purple) on the upper surfaces and varnished fuselages (warm light yellows.) The others had the 5 colour lozenge printed camouflage.
If your talking a modern replica...there was a Siemens Schuckert D.III at Guntersville Alabama in 1992 -1994. It was purple overall with yellow accents and I believe a yellow ta and purple tail unit. (Yellow lion's head on the fuselage side by cockpit.)
Since you can't be more specific...thats all I can offer.
