Artists typically mix paint colors in slightly different ways to achieve various shades of pink. The current use of HEX codes, sRGB coordinates, CYMK coordinates and HSV coordinates by color programs now have recognized standard color assignations to every possible mixture of color. Color wheels, tables and squares have coordinates representing the amounts of red, blue and yellow in any color coordinate system.
