  Color (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Colors are perceiver-dependent but hybrid properties: to have a specific color is to have some intrinsic feature by virtue of which the object has the power to appear in a distinctive way (e.g., as in 4).
Colors are properties that as a group, form an internally-related 4+2 structure, built on the four unique, primary hues: green, red, blue and yellow, and related to the fl/white pair.
Colors are what fill in the outlines of these forms, they are the stuff out of which visual phenomena are built up; our visual world consists solely of differently formed colors; and objects, from the point of view of seeing them, that is, seen objects, are nothing other than colors of different kinds and forms.

  Color - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Color or colour (see spelling differences) is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, yellow, white, etc. Color derives from the spectrum of light (distribution of light energy versus wavelength) interacting in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors.
To summarize, the color of an object is a complex result of its surface properties, its transmission properties, and its emission properties, all of which factors contribute to the mix of wavelengths in the light leaving the surface of the object.
Colors are produced when a material is scored with fine parallel lines, formed of many thin parallel layers, or otherwise composed of microstructures on the scale of the color's wavelength.

 Firelily Designs - Color Vision, Color Deficiency
The subject of color usage on the web comes up once in a while, so I thought it might be useful to pull together some basic issues for people who might be interested in color.
It is not a discussion of when and whether it is appropriate to use color at all, or of considerations for international use of color; those are huge topics deserving separate discussion.
Color on color may seem (relatively) safe if you understand color deficiency, but there is one more catch.

 Color Theory Tutorial by Worqx
Choices regarding color often seem rather mystical, as many seem to base decisions on nothing other than "it looks right." Although often told I had an eye for color, the reason why some colors worked together while others did not always intrigued me and I found the study of color theory fascinating.
With respect to the arts, color was part of the realistic, visual representation of form, but one group of painters abandoned the traditional practices regarding color in painting.
After reviewing the information, I hope you will see that the successful use of color is not at all mystical, and that by understanding a few things about color, it is possible to incorporate into your designs with a confidence based on tested concepts and methods.
