What color do you get when red and green paint is mixed?

Most commonly you will get some variation on brown, however it can look like a dark grey or off-black.
When adding shadow to paintings, many artists use the complimentary colour (red in green, purple in yellow, blue in orange) to achieve a dark brown, that comes very close to black, but has more "life" than using a true black in the mix.
