Color (BE spelling: colour) is the perception of the frequency (or wavelength) of light.
In visual arts, color is used in painting and drawing. Painting and drawing is essentially the artistic application of colored substances (that contain pigments) to a surface, such as canvas or paper, to create a picture.
Images that use only black and white and/or greyscale shades, are said to be "uncolored" because they have a saturation of zero in the HSV color system, which means their hue is undefined and their only distinction is their value.
List of some color terms:
- Hue: the color's location on the spectrum.
- Saturation: how "dense", "intense", "bright" or "un-grey" a color is.
- Value: how light or dark a color is.
- Tint: a color made lighter by adding white.
- Shade: a color made darker by adding black.
Color in spanking art
In visual spanking art, color can be used to:
- achieve a more realistic image
- create an "atmosphere" that matches the scene depicted
- give a picture a "calm/vintage" effect (low-saturated colors) or a "modern/pop" effect (high-saturated colors, such as in anime)
The Italian Spanking Art Pages have a tutorial on how to realistically digitally redden buttocks in photographs.
