In this example, the beige sheet first seems to sit on top of the black square, but on the bottom, the black square is on top of the beige sheet.
The mixture color seems warmer on the top, because the beige sheet seems to dominate. The mixture colors are cooler on the bottom as the black seems to be dominant.
The color that seems to dominate the mixture will be perceived as the transparency on top.
