Masstone and undertone applications of
transparent colors. The paint on the left was applied in full thickness with a palette knife and then scraped to the canvas at the top of the strip. The right side was applied thinly with a brush and then wiped away to show the undertone of the transparent color. Nickel Azo Yellow (left) is a complicated, wide ranging color with a greenish brown masstone with a hint of glowing red beneath the brushstroke. The undertone transitions from an earth orange to a chromatic, almost astringent, brilliant yellow. Transparent Red Iron Oxide (center) is a deep transparent red brown with a fiery red glow. The undertone ranges from glowing earth red
to blazing orange. Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide, (right) by contrast, is much warmer, yellowish brown. It is a transparent chestnut brown with a slight reddish bias in the masstone and a clean earth yellow undertone.
