PS Real painter, that has been trained in accademic classical way, paint mixing only the three primaries, a different yellow or a vermillion and a violet will complete the pallette.

Something like fast food.

In classical academic painting (Rembrandt, Velasquez, Rubens, Goya, etc), the earth colours are the most important. They are also the most difficult to reproduce with the three-primary system used by current digital cameras.

Skin tones are close to earth colours and are likewise hard to reproduce correctly.
