Are you White, Red, Yellow or Black?

1. is 40% saturated, 50% red, 29% green and 20% blue.

2. is 47% saturated, 92% red, 82% green, 75% blue.

1. and 2. are both shades of brown.

“Brown colors are dark or muted shades of reds, oranges, and yellows on the RGB and CMYK color schemes. In practice, browns are created by mixing two complementary colors from the RYB color scheme (combining all three primary colors). In theory, such combinations should produce black, but produce brown because most commercially-available blue pigments tend to be comparatively weaker; the stronger red and yellow colors prevail”

Now… I know that if you walk into a completely dark room after having been in bright sunshine a while, the blackness is a bit blue, presumably because the sun is a bit red/yellow. Though, the sun it is pretty close to pure white, much closer to white than any human’s skin at least.  This means we’re all the same colour as the sun, only different shades.
