One doing work for Violet (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

indigo

Here is my best explanation:

'violet' is the definition.

(indigo is a kind of violet)

'one doing work' is the subsidiary indication.

'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).

'work' indicates anagramming the letters.

'doing' is an anagram of 'ndigo'.

'i'+'ndigo'='indigo'

'for' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for indigo that I've seen before include "Deep blue dye or colour", "I of ROYGBIV", "Settlement; New Mexico native", "A deep blue dye or colour", "Sixth rainbow colour", "Violet dye", "Plant dye", "Blue-violet colour", "Violet-blue dye" and "Deep-blue dye or colour".)
