Pantone Color Trends

The color of the year is Tangerine Tango.

Okay, so sometimes I'm a bit slow on the uptake, but I didn't realize that color trends were applicable to art too. Pantone - I thought color wheels and palettes that's what I remember from art classes. Oh no, not any more!
Did you know there is an ap for your phone for capturing, creating and sharing color palettes? And, get this... you can even get your Visa card in one of the color trends! For the report click here.
17-1463 Tangerine Tango 
13-0759 Solar Power 
18-3628 Bellflower 
18-2140 Cabaret 
19-3953 Sodalite Blue
14-0116 Margarita
14-2808 Sweet Lilac
14-5420 Cockatoo
16-1120 Starfish

Of course I had to find out how these colors translate into Prismacolors! Prisma's already on it, and they have a list on their website.
