Response to I do tone down my paints, something that is black for instance looks more realistic to me

if you decide to tone down any color don't add white. That will make it paler but what you want to do is make it less intense. The way that is done is to add a little bit of whatever color is opposite it on the "color wheel". The color wheel is that rainbowy thingy that artists always refer to. Orange and blue are opposite of each other on the color wheel so if your Orange is too intense just add a drop of blue and likewise if your blue is to intense just add a drop of orange. What makes this method so great is that it doesn't change the color just its intensity. You can probably Google "Artists Color Wheel" and find a dozen in an instant and you can refer to them as to which color is opposite which. I have only rarely done this but it is quite effective.
