COLOR

One of the most important Art Elements

What is Color?

It's what we see when light reflects.


To see color, you have to have light. When light shines on an object some colors bounce off the object and others are absorbed by it. Our eyes only see the colors that are bounced off or reflected.

The sun’s rays contain all the colors of the rainbow mixed together. This mixture is known as white light. When white light strikes a white crayon, it appears white to us because it absorbs no color and reflects all color equally. A black crayon absorbs all colors equally and reflects none, so it looks black to us. While artists consider black a color, scientists do not because black is the absence of all color.

Capillary Action Color Mixing

The water "walks" up the paper towel and into the empty glass very much like water "walks" up the stem of a plant. The molecules attract and the water flows up.
