Flamboyant Orange is not Shy, and it likes to Show off.
The colour orange has been named after a fruit, and the colour is as sweet on the palette as the fruit is on the palate. Cadmium Orange, Tangerine and Vermillion remind me of sweet orange cordial, summer and childhood. My mother planted nasturtium flowers en masse in her garden.I love them, but nasturtiums are such complicated little flowers to paint!
Orange is not my all time favourite colour, but I appreciate its value and it has a space reserved on my palette. A secondary colour, orange is easy to mix, using red and yellow; but for a dazzling, bright and lasting orange pigment, the colour is at its best freshly squeezed (like the fruit) straight from the tube.
