Who hypothesized that all color variations were the result of mixtures of darkness and light?
Imagine that you are looking at a collection of colored lights of equal wattage. When you see them, one color is brighter than all the others. This is explained by the phenomena of...
It appears that no complete and perfect model of perceived colors is possible because human perception of hue and chroma do not vary consistently.

Several color theorists offered descriptions of how to balance colors correctly within a composition -- some offered a numeric ‚"weight" for each hue. The text asserts that...
...correct color balance depends on the artist's expressive intent and color interactions, thus no absolute rules about visual weight are reliable.
The color of an object can alter the apparent size of that object. According to the text, if a brilliant yellow beach ball is sitting next to a bright blue beach ball
the yellow ball will appear larger than the blue ball.
Color choices may be base as much on perception of space, unity and emphasis as on issues or realism.
