Color Mixing Fails

This must seem like a hopelessly lame question, but I feel compelled to ask it anyway, I have tried to attach of photo of some tulips, but so far, I haven't seen any sign that it is truly attached.

Anyway... I've been trying to match the sort of orange sherbet color of the orangey tulip, and I just can't get anything close. I've tried various combinations of these colors (all W+N, Holbein, or Daler-Rowney artists colors)... warm orange; permanent rose; alizarin crimson; cadmium red light; indian yellow; naples yellow; jaune brilliant; winsor lemon.

If you have any suggestions for other colors I might try, or especially what combinations might work the best, I'd really appreciate it.

My thanks in advance.
