Okay, so I say “peachy pink” a lot. I use the term when I try to explain to students how to handle light-value warm color temperature in the landscape. Some of my students in a recent workshop were teasing me about it.
I’m not sure how I came to start saying “peachy pink.” I guess it’s just the easiest way to get across a color that’s between a pink and an orange. And it’s often a go-to color I use when I see a strong highlight on something like a tree trunk. When working from a reference photo, that sort of highlight will often appear white in the photo. But if you painted it that way, it wouldn’t appear sunlit.

This peachy-pink color also works well for sunlit areas of snow. Where the snow is most directly sunlit, I’ll also use a very light-value lemon-yellow on top of my peachy-pink.

Hopefully the silly memory of hearing “peachy pink” so many times during my workshop will help students remember to carefully consider how to approach those light-value warm areas of the landscape!
