old but bold

I love vintage illustrations especially when they use such bold and surprising colors. Just look at these daring colors! I take a lot of inspiration from these illustrations and their use of color and painting techniques.

The Flesh of Man

I have been working on a painting with many different types of flesh tones in one painting. I was wondering how the best way to depict it was and looking at various flesh tones. As I was looking at some of my examples in my roster I noticed a wide variety of tones and wondered which were the most realistic, if any.  Did it depend on the paints? The lighting? The natural tone of the model? Does it have to be realistic?
