Of course you cannot mix it.
It is not a colour.
It is a mottled pattern of different colours.
Here is part of your photo, in pixel form:



You can see it is not one colour.

Re: How do you mix this color?

It is a classic burnt sienna color. You could probably make loads of burnt sienna paint with earth samples taken from that very spot.

(the terra rosa suggested is in the same color space)

I'd get close to the base color (like a burnt sienna - a deep reddish-brown color)
What red/browns do you have on hand?
Then I would probably add slight variations right on the canvas.
But that depend on your style & preference.

Re: How do you mix this color?

Thank you everyone for the valuable information! I learned not only what I needed, but learned more about mixing colors in general.

I am considering buying that book. I never had a problem with getting the color I wanted until I came across earth red.

I am second with Venetian red. Also, try Chromium Oxide green, Yellow ochre and Mars Violet (or UMB + Venetian Red instead of Mars Violet) for that color gamut. Vandyck brown for shadows.
