Creating Coral?

Okay paint people, I know you will know this.

I have an upcoming project that I need to tackle for a relative, and the colors are grey, turquoise, and coral. Now will I be able to find the the color coral in watercolor, or maybe acrylics (no decision yet on the medium), or will I need to create coral?

If so...how do u make coral??

These are basically the colors I will need to use. I just don't know how to get the coral color. (?)

For oils I would mix red and white to get a pink and then add yellow. I would use 'rose red' 'titanium white' and 'cadmium yellow light'.

I just tried Terry's suggestion here.
Probably could have added more white.

Talking

Well that sounds reasonable enough I should have a chance this week to try it out.

Thank you
