Intro to Color Theory

  1. 1. introduction to color ART 251
  2. 2. Physical and Chemical Aspect of Color Color is the visual effect that is caused by the spectral composition of the light emitted, transmitted, absorbed, and reflected by objects.
  3. 3. S i r I s a a c N e w t o n ( 1 6 4 3 - 1 7 2 7 ) , E n g l i s h mathematician and physicist observed the phenomenon of light refracted by a glass prism and concluded that white light is a mixture of varied color rays.
  4. 4. Color Perception • SCATTERING • INCANDESCENCE • SUBTRACTION
  5. 5. Scattering Why is the sky blue?
  6. 6. Incandescence
  7. 7. Absorption
  8. 8. 1.  All the" invisible" colors of sunlight shine on the apple. 2.  The surface of a red apple absorbs all the colored light rays, except for those corresponding to red, and reflects this color to the human eye. Environment & Perception also play into our interpretation of this color. 3.  The eye receives the reflected red light and sends a message to the brain.
  9. 9. When light hits the surface, the BLUE paint ABSORBS all the light EXCEPT the blue part of the spectrum.
