Pantone Colors in Watercolor

Here is the list of Pantone colors along with the watercolors I used to re-create it. 

The first color listed is the one used most, then those that follow are lesser in ratio. Hope that makes sense. The best way is to use these colors and mix until you've gotten the color you're going for.

I literally cut out the Pantones and tried to copy them.
Also these aren't EXACT replicas. They are close enough for me.


  • Tangerine Tango (color of the year) - Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Quinacridone Rose
  • Cabaret - Quinacridone Rose, Cadmium Red, Cobalt Blue

You know I hate copying colors for class. Though it's so helpful. I sometimes just hate doing the work.
