Which color would be the closest to an orangeish Red?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to attempt some layering of oranges with yellow highlights and anticipate starting with a red basecoat. With this in mind, is there a red that has orange in it? 

 

To me, it looks like Phoenix Red (9005) is a step before Fire Orange (9006). Thus, would Phoenix Red be a good start to Orange and Yellow layering or are there other recommendations?

 

Thanks much.

Phoenix red is very orange, and yes it is a bit redder than Fire Orange.  It really rides that border between red and orange, which makes it pretty useful.  It's an excellent color for highlighting reds, and definitely could be a shadow color for orange & yellow.  As per it's name, it's a good color for standard flames.
