RE: what is in a COLOR?Bradley Ward 7/29/2015 6:48:20 PMThis way of talking about colors reminds me of the different dyes that are used in the foods that we eat. The colorof dye is notated by a color, but also by a number to further differentiate it. There are currently only 7 differentfood colorings that are approved by the FDA at the moment, so that means that food and beverage manufacturersneed to mix these colors to achieve the different colors that they need to manufacture.RE: what is in a COLOR?Leslie Reed 7/29/2015 7:36:37 PMI never thought about color this way. I always thought about solid or mixed colors, dark or light. The waythat the professor explains the color scheme is very interesting. I have a few drawings in my home that Iapplied this too. Before this class, I would have never looked at the lines, forms, hue and mass. I definitelydid not know what these elements of arts meant.

Some people seedifferent colors, while others see none at all. That is why some people are colorblind. This would be extremelyhelpful if you are an Art teacher. You would need your color abilities to see what's in front of you.RE: what is in aCOLOR?Michael Nava 7/30/2015 12:31:29 PMYou make a good point about people who are colorblind and that shows how color is so hard to describe.Everyone has their own perception of color as well as their own perception to lines, form, shape, andtexture. There are many elements of art that color isn't everything and even those who are colorblind canenjoy other aspects of art.RE: what isin aCOLOR?Shalom Suniula 7/30/2015 3:43:44 PMThis is great point Michael, color can be difficult to describe and the view you make on colorblindpeople really adds perspective to describing color. Color is often described to have two importantroles, describing and composing. Color can often describe a scene to tell you where the light iscoming from, what kind of texture of surface that helps best describes the scene. A combinationof color and hue helps create the visual structure of the image.RE: what is in aCOLOR?Leslie Reed 7/31/2015 2:44:18 PMI agree with both of you. Some people have problems distinguishingbetween colors and shapes, so they make their own color scheme ofthings. I have a friend that has a problem telling with certain colors andhe will argue me up and down that he is correct about the color he islooking at, when in fact he’s completely wrong.RE:what isin aCOLOR?Professor Clarke-Peterson 8/1/2015 12:05:31 AMClass, Jean also has a good point.
