Ain´t it beautiful all these colors, !
What is color? Color is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, yellow, blue, black, etc. Color derives from the spectrum of light (distribution of light energy versus wavelength) interacting in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors. Color categories and physical specifications of color are also associated with objects, materials, light sources, etc., based on their physical properties such as light absorption, reflection, or emission spectra.
Colors play an important part in our lives (for sure in mine). Sometimes you feel attracted to certain colors, sometimes you just need them.
A wonderful site to visit is Color in Motion, from Claudia Cortés.
In "the Lab" you can create your own color mandalas by using the eye-droppers in the kaleidoscope project.Have fun!
