Watercolour cheat sheet - discoveries in mixing skin-tones. I try to find paints that make it faster/easier to mix skin colours. The one I have most success with is “violet gray”, then “permanent magenta” for darker and wider ranges, and “purple lake”. Mix these (sparingly) with raw sienna. The darker the purple the less you’ll need to add to your yellow (yellow ochre works as well). For a lighter, paler, redder skin tone, raw sienna + brown madder is what I prefer.
