Was wondering what is the proper color to add to dull gray.
I was working on the Impressionistic Flower class and I needed a duller gray (not darker) and I could not dull the color.  Adding the mixed black darkened it.

that is a tough one because grey is a neutral colour (it already contains all 3 primary colours). You would need to look carefully to see which is the dominant colour (red, blue or yellow) and then pop in some of the opposite

That makes perfect sense.  Thank you
