Color: Two Concepts
In everyday life, we consider color to be a property of materials. A ripe tomato is red, the glass of a wine bottle is green, sulfur is yellow, snow is white, and Mary’s scarf is blue. We naturally appraise the colors of objects and materials in daylight. We commonly hold a piece of fabric in daylight at a window in order to judge its color. Normal daylight viewing is associated with the reported color of an object.
