What colors to you use on your palette to achieve your flesh tones.
Sorry for the late reply! This question touches a nerve for me because I feel it’s my duty in life to defend the honor of the late Albert Henry Munsell.
"Color" is different from paint pigments. You can achieve a "color," meaning a specific hue, value, and chroma, with any number of mixtures of paint pigments. This point is really important to me because I wrote my B.A. thesis in college on the history of the Munsell Color System, using his diaries as a primary source. In that paper I claimed that Munsell was the first to truly realize that our perception of color is totally separate from the components that go into making it. "Color" is not the recipe of its ingredients.
I almost don’t want to answer this question because different artists achieve the same (or similar) colors using very different “recipes” of pigment mixtures — there’s no “right” one, and different brands of paint will even look different. I think it’s best for each person do figure it out themselves by looking and thinking really hard rather than blindly following some rule.
BUT since you asked I use primarily yellow ochre, terra rossa, burnt umber, raw umber, ivory black, and titanium white. Pretty neutral, earth-toned palette.
