Foggy Mist

Oil on card 15 x 20 cm or 6 x 8 inches
I had just got in from painting the windmills for a spot of lunch when another friend, who lives just above where I paint these, send a message that the river had a "lovely foggy mist".  Cant resist a bit of foggy mist so dashed out again and got a bit of foggy mist, which turned to foggy rain.  Rain and oil paint do interesting things, I like painting in the rain!  What I am having trouble with, however, is the right mix of colours for the faded luminous orange of all the bouyes, anyone got any colour mixing ideas?

Naples yellow with a touch of vermillion? Kind of close, the bouys are a really tricky shade aren't they. I love the windwishers in your previous post.
