African American Skin Tone

Does anyone have a good recipe for black skin tone for oil painting? I am disappointed with the murky, valueless colors I've come up with. I would appreciate any advice.

Recipes don't work for flesh unless you want a monotone. Too many nuances. Start with a mid-range & adjust slightly into the cools & warms, shadows & highs.
