Color and Form

I will like to write about subtractive colour theory and ya!! I got to know that why dark colors seems to be warmer, actually colors like black and brown seems to be warm because the color of an object s the one which gets reflected by it, and the rest light waves get absorbed by its surface so as we all know that energy never is destroyed so these absorbed light waves produce heat and more absorbed waves more amount of heat.
OK…….one more thing!!! colors are always relative so the theory behind color contrast is also very interesting…the difference between light waves detected by the apparatus of the eyeball is called the color contrast between to colors the photo receptive field near the fovea are responsible for 4 kinds of visions
In the order for an object to be detected by he eye, a light wave must cross over; minimum 3 photo receptive cells. The color, size, shape, and motion of an object can’t be artificially separated, all 4 of these factors determine the color contrast there is no color on earth, all color seen by man is a result of light that is reflected off the surface of the object.
now summery
-a light color appears larger than a dark one on the identical background
-a light color appears lighter on a darker back ground than it does on a lighter back ground
-a grey tends to appear like the complementary of the background hue
-colors of similar hues-appears more like each others complementary hue when juxtaposed
-a color appears weakest in chrome when it placed against its strongest
color and it looks strongest when placed against its strongest colour of its
complementary hue.
