The Pantone Company has selected "Tangerine Tango" as THE color for 2012. So, try to do a painting based around this color. Used undiluted, it's extremely powerful, so best used in small amounts, but mixed with white, it makes a beautiful pastel; gray makes it look smoky; paired with deep browns and crimsons, it's warm and powerful, or use blues and grays to cool it down.
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
