Matisse Structure Acrylic Auroline Yellow 75ml


Availability: 5 in stock

Aureolin has an unusual quality – when applied thinly or watered down to a watercolor-like wash the full beauty of the pigment is revealed in its under-tone. The watercolorist is only interested in that bright clean under-tone but the acrylic painter has the choice of utilizing the mass-tone/under-tone (the full strength surface colour of a pigment viewed by reflective light is called its mass or top tone, its colour effect when it is spread out thinly is called undertone) differences for some very beautiful effects.
