Color Notes - Cadmium Orange
Cadmium Orange is one of the most useful colors around. I have been using it lately, to liven up my paintings.....it's everywhere right now, in the fall foliage up here in Gore. If you want to punch up a landscape painting, just add some Cadmium Orange. Add a little white to it and you get a wonderful peach color....add more white still and you have a good base for making some nice flesh colors. Try mixing some into a green and you will end up with some very natural greens, not those flashy man made greens you see straight from the tube. And of course, use it for painting your pumpkin still life!
