Does anyone understand the layer opacity dial?
I paint with oils, 50% Thinners on default paper. Add an extra layer.
I paint black on top layer and white on bottom layer.
I set opacity dial to 50% - and would expect a 50% gray - but no, the result is a it's a 67% gray.
Other values black top, white buttom:
opacity 10% - result 94% gray
opacity 25% - result 85% gray
opacity 50% - result 67% gray
opacity 70% - result 49% gray
opacity 75% - result 44% gray
Values from white bottom, black top:
opacity 10% - result 25% gray
opacity 25% - result 44% gray
opacity 50% - result 66% gray
opacity 70% - result 81% gray
opacity 75% - result 84% gray
Have anyone figured out what to expect when using opacity?
My goal was to use it for colour mixing - but I guess that might not work...
