When I pick a color in the Image Editor, and then proceed to paint with the picked color, the paint does not match the color I picked..

enter image description here

Why does the painted color not match the color I picked?

    $\begingroup$ It appears from the picture that you have not a single color, as I see darker shades of this color near the "outlet holes". The color picker will pick the color from a single pixel. Have you tried other nearby areas to pick from? $\endgroup$
