Yellow and Orange


L*c*h Color Space

I found out that the relationship between yellow and orange is very complex.

L*c*h color space is known to be close to human perceptions. (L is lightness, c is chromaticity, and h is hue) According to L*c*h color space, yellow and orange have the same chromaticity and hue, but different lightness, which means orange color is a darker version of yellow.

However, I learned that orange color is the mixture of red and yellow, so they should be different kinds. In RGB color space, generally small values correspond to dark colors and large values light colors. (0,0,0) is complete black, and (255,255,255) is complete white. Here, yellow and orange have different portions of R, G, and B.

Which color space explains the relationship between yellow and orange better?

며칠 전에 PLAY BURGER에 갔다.

한 눈에 봐도 디자인에 무척이나 신경 쓴 게 보였다.

그 중 알록달록하게 전시되어 있는 Vitamin Water!

여름에 미국에 갔을 때 마트에선 보았던 장면이 떠올랐다. (위 사진들)

예쁘긴 한데 건강엔 쫌…
