What Exactly Is Color?

Color, in essence, is a fascinating interplay of physics and perception. It’s our brain, the master artist, that translates the rhythmic waves into the myriad of colors we perceive. Just think about it – the shade of your favorite object might seem different under the crisp morning sunlight compared to the soft glow of an evening lamp. So, as we journey from daylight into the hush of the night, our perception of color subtly shifts, creating a mesmerizing, ever-changing canvas right before our eyes.

Each color is created by mixing three basic colors, i.e., red, yellow, and blue (RGB). From these three colors, we are able to create so-called derived colors:

  • red + yellow = orange
  • red + blue = purple
  • blue + yellow = green

This way, we already have six colors. Combining primary colors with derivatives, we will get complementary colors. E.g.:

  • yellow + purple
  • blue + orange
  • green + red

Colors are also divided into hot (warm) and cold:

  • Warm are those with a particle of red, yellow, and orange in them, which we associate with warmth. It is the sun that you read about earlier that contains these colors.
  • Cold colors are those that have green, blue, and purple particles in them. We associate them with something reassuring.
