  What were early studies of color?
He recognized that the colors comprising white light are "refracted" (bent) by different amounts and he also understood that there is no "colored" light, the color being in the eye of the beholder.
The third type of color systems is based on the perceptional relationship amongst the colors.
The latter correspond to the polar coordinates (angle and radius) in the horizontal plane.

 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 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 science is a large field, but it is built around the way that colors appear and to the conditions under which colors can be perceived, and the causes which lead to the perception of colors.

Color exhibiting hue, as opposed to achromatic color.
The wavelength of the color corresponding to the perceptual notion of hue.
On the chromaticity diagram, the dominant wavelength is defined as the wavelength of the point on the spectral locus, corresponding to the intersection of the locus with a line drawn from the reference white through the color in question.

 handprint : comparison of hue circles
The perceived color difference across 10 unit intervals in the red to blue hues is much larger than the perceived difference in the same interval across the green to yellow hues, and differences across the yellow to red hues are much larger than those across blue to green.
Color locations are computed from the proportional stimulation to the R, G and B cones, mathematically transformed into a dimension of lightness (L*) and two perpendicular dimensions of hue, which do not match the Hering unique hues or the opponent process dimensions of the visual system (as measured in rhesus monkeys).
Contrary to traditional "color theory" dogma, red is not the mixing complement of green, and purple (violet) is not the mixing complement of yellow.

 NCS-System
The NCS system is designed as an aid to defining the colour of a wall in a room, a distant tree, a painted surface exhibiting simultaneous contrast or a point on a television screen purely on the basis of its perception and does not involve the mutual comparison of a series of colours ("colour
All variables in the NCS system are likewise defined by means of similarity.
Finally, all colours in the rows running parallel to the line between fl and the observed colour contain the same proportions of white (this will be evident from the intersection of rows C and S, and is therefore not explicitly shown).

 handprint : modern color models
The vertical fl to white dimension is the lightness or value of a color; the circumference of the horizontal disk perpendicular to the lightness dimension is the hue of a color; and the lateral distance or radius on this disk, from the center outward, is the chroma (approximately the saturation) of a color.
Color models differ in the specific assumptions that are used to define the color geometry and color labels and the specific measurement methods used to link the geometry to color stimuli and color exemplars.
Recall that the color geometry common to all modern color models consists of a brightness/lightness dimension that is perpendicular to (separate from) the chromaticity plane or hue circle.

COLOR IN NATURE The basic purpose of color vision is to give important information to human beings about their surroundings.
Environmental color design must be built on other premises, due to material, proportions, context, function, etc. To go into this dialogue the color designer needs knowledge and experience to build up a color design that works for its purpose, and a language to communicate his ideas and solutions.
COLOR EDUCATION I will touch on design education and the need for knowledge of how color works due to the basic ideas of color vision: to separate objects and to inform about their quality.

As you operate the mixer, the resulting color is displayed below the diagram as a solid rectangle and the color's position is indicated on the chromaticity diagram by the marker.
The colored hexagon on the left is a horizontal slice of the hexcone, shown on the right as a light-grey plane.
The matching color is the color of the inner rectangle, the color to be matched is the one of the outer rectangle.

 Basic Color Terms&Categories   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
But no matter how many basic color terms languages might have, their foci tend to cluster reliably in relatively narrow regions of the array, whereas boundaries are drawn unreliably, with low consistency and consensus for any language.
The color categories that these six pick out appear to have a prototypic structure, with the foci for the most part positioned where visual science would have expected them to be, the generalization from the prototypic instances being achieved by mechanisms held in common by members of our species and our animal cousins.
Stage I systems (of which Dani is the only attested example) are followed by systems of the Stage II type, with three categories: a white category, a (red plus yellow) category, and a (fl plus green plus blue) category.
