What Is Color? : Page 3

Color is the byproduct of the spectrum of light, as it is reflected or absorbed, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain.


Color Gamut
The gamut is the set of possible colors within a color system. No one system can reproduce all possible colors in the spectrum.

Unfortunately for designers, it is not possible to create every color in the spectrum with either additive or subtractive colors. Both systems can reproduce a subset of all visible color, and while those subsets generally overlap, there are colors which can be reproduced with additive color and not with subtractive color and vise-versa.
