The challenge this week from Daily Paintworks was to use "Tangerine Tango," named by the Pantone Company to be THE color of 2012. In truth, I have no idea what the Pantone Company is, nor do I own "Tangerine Tango" as a tube of paint. I did, however, make the color mixing cadmium orange and cadmium red. It just so happened that I had this amaryllis in full bloom on my kitchen table. To my eye, it is this color exactly - beautiful and powerful.
