The Role Of Advanced Color Theory

By Alta Alexander

There are many paints that are available in the markets. In order to achieve favorable paints that are required to perform painting to give certain results, mixing of different paints is carried out. Mixing of the concoctions is carefully done where certain criterion are adhered to ensure the correct outcome is realized. This process of mixing paints to form new colors is referred to as advanced color theory.

Many theories have been developed over time. Despite having some similar components, this theory is very useful and should be studied. It deals with classification of dyes where by it gives two major groups in which any available dye can fall in. These groups are the primary and secondary pigments. Research found out that the primary category comprised of three commonly used Chroma which are red, green and blue. This grouped forms the backbone of studying chromatography.

Secondary and tertiary pigments are derived from the primary ones. To produce these paints, primary dyes are mixed in well-defined ratios to give the expected outcomes. These paints cannot be used to develop other paints since they are cannot mix easily. Cyan, yellow, magenta (CYMK) is the notation used to give the secondary dyes.

Some assumptions have been made by theorists who developed this mode. One of these assumptions is that all inks are possible to mix. Failure of these inks to mix uniformly has been attributed to some conditions such as impurities in the inks and imperfection of colorants. In the real sense only primary inks can mix uniformly to give rise to new pigmentation.

When painting is done, it is mostly to the outside of structures. However individual perception and inner world plays an important role. The advanced theory suggests that exterior light is more aligned to green while inner light has more of magenta. This variation is brought about by the intensity of light illuminated on the objects in place.

The study of this subject is very important in our lives since it influences how things appear in the world. Painters and scientists rely mainly on this knowledge to mix different paints leading to generation of more paints. It has also enabled classification of all available colors making their use and selection rather easier by other users who are not well informed in this field.

Different characteristics have been attributed to some Chroma. An example is luminance. This is the ability to reflect light that is directed to a colored object. To increase the reflective ability, white is added to a hue making it appear brighter. Black on the other hand can be added to light pigments thus lowering the purity level of that hue making the object give off less light when subjected to a beam of rays. This is an important principle that is widely used by many chromatographers and scientists in evaluating different appearances of objects.

Saturation of a paint can also be evaluated. This is done using special beams of light to determine how close a paint is to appearing grey. Those that are near grey are termed as being unsaturated. Those that do not give a look near grey are saturated and the levels vary.
