Color is a complex phenomenon that makes each person's experience of color distinct. As a result, we often have difficulty in communicating about color. This website is partially dedicated to overcoming this by defining color terminology using the COLORCUBE as the standard model for visualizing color concepts. Since we do not claim to be the utmost authorities on color, we invite you to challenge and debate our statements about the dimensions of color.

Diagrams featuring Hue Objects

Description: Colors are usually first identified according to their hue. This quality of color distinguishes a "red" from a "green" from a "blue". These labels or color categories also correlate to a specific range of frequencies on the color spectrum that a hue occupies.

Inside the COLORCUBE: Graphs of constant hue appear like triangular fins connecting the grayscale to a spectral color along the edge of the 'Cube.

Behaviour: As hue changes, colors rotate around the grayscale.

Alternate terms: Color

Examples: Green = grass, Blue = sky, The "Colors of the Rainbow" represent different hues (ROYGBIV).
