This nuance is a striking example of the subtle interaction between nature’s colors and the human eye. Such balanced hues made with burnt umber are selected when achromatic grays are too cool and the raw umbers are too greenish. Its spectral activity extends across the whole range of visible light – that and its velvety texture make it an ideal background color for people who do not like to live in all-white walls. Cyprus umber 272 medium is frequently combined with KT 32.009 China clay white - the cool white heightens the medium umber’s graceful appeal.
