Oranges from Gamblin Artists Colors
Orange is a color I don't use much unless I need a pure orange note, such as I can get with Cadmium Orange. Most often, I just mix orange out of Cadmium Light and Napthol Scarlet or some other yellow/red combination. For pastel, I do use orange, but most often the duller versions that tend toward brown; I have some lovely dull tints that are just right for highlights on sunlit rock planes or dry grasses. Bright orange isn't a color I see often in a landscape, unless it's flowers or some man-made element.
