Making a vibrant red

edited December 2017 in Color Mixing
Hi, I have been watching many of your videos on mixing paint using a limited palette (primary colors) and I love it! I have been able to create all of the pigments you can see in the photograph below for my painting, so thank you very much for your amazing tutorials!
However, I have been trying to create this very vibrant red you can see in the turban in the photograph below, and can't seem to create it (with a palette consisting of alzarine red, cadmium light yellow, Burnt umber, ultramarine blue and titanium white). 
Do you think I can create it using these colors? and If so how? I always end up with an earthy red or an orangy red. Or do I need to purchase a pre made color to achieve this?
Thank you!
