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
motion
form
depth
color
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.

Colour and Form

The failure of an assignment made my interest in colours and I will like to-share my
understanding of color with graphics people.
Let’s first talk about the assignment; the assignment was to make different colors looking same or same colors looking different playing with background and all.
I must say except gray, every color-discouraged me .I read some books over colors behavior and some basic things about colours so I came to know that colors have 3 essential qualities, hue, value and chroma.

HUE: hue is a family name for a group of chromatic colors or the quality by which
colors of equal luminosity and chroma may differ [the length o f ether waves
impacting on retina]

VALUE: the lightness of color

CHROMA: in general color intensity,
the quality of color by which we distinguish a strong color from a weak one

This theory is called the MUN-SELL SYSTEM OF HUE, VALUE AND CHROMA
