Verlinden is know for the use of the colours :

- Burnt Sienna
- Raw Umber
- Yellow Ochre

The three mixed make the basic skin colour

it should look something like this colour...

Titanium White is the other colour to lighten things.

To give a face a particular look , he also uses Cadmium Red and Cadmium Yellow.
