Are there paintings of their actual skin complexions? I've seen paintings where they make distinctions in looks with people from other areas such as with Nubians being black skinned and people from other parts of North Africa being lighter. Was it probably just harder for the Egyptians to capture their particular skin complexion accurately for paintings? I mean, no one is actually red or yellow. Was their actual complexion reflected more with the women since they weren't exposed to the sun's skin darkening?
