Color mixing table
Color is a qualitative subjective characteristic of electromagnetic radiation in the optical range, determined on the basis of the physiological visual sensation that arises and depends on a number of physical, physiological and psychological factors. The perception of color is determined by the individuality of the person, as well as the spectral composition, color and brightness contrast with the surrounding light sources, as well as non-luminous objects. Such phenomena as metamerism, individual hereditary features of the human eye (the degree of expression of polymorphic visual pigments) and psyche are very important.
In simple terms, color is a feeling that a person gets when light rays enter his eye. The flow of light with the same spectral composition will cause different sensations for different people due to the fact that they have different characteristics of the perception of the eye, and for each of them the color will be different. It follows that disputes, “what color really is,” are meaningless - only the measurement of what the “composition” of radiation is “meaningful” has meaning.
