OP Thanks, Rhubarb, for primrose. I never knew that primrose was pale yellow. What a revelation.
And cerulean for light blue is terrific, too.
I think of jade as being darker than light green, but I have seen very pale jade, which was lovely.
Apricot I would think of as having a bit too much yellow in it to be light orange...but maybe. And maybe peach, too, yellow aside. I suppose those would work.
But ochre? I don't think of that at all as yellow plus white. I see ochre with a bit of brown, orange, or even green in it.
Thanks a lot. I'm quite satisfied now.
