No light, no >color, no picture. > With painters--and many other picture-makers, we so often are talking about value when we are talking about light (and dark), so that is what I was thinking in terms of here. But, of course, no light waves, no color. In the case where the gentleman was refering to the ink colors on the print (dye in this case, probably instead of pigment) I'm used to people using the term color to simply be designating hue, rather than understanding that color in pigment is made up of hue, temperature, value and intensity. And the color appears however it does because of how the light waves hitting the pigment--or dye or ink or other material accepts (absorbs) or rejects certain light waves. So I agree with you. And also, in terms of what I was taking the gentleman to be meaning and how I was using 'light'--in terms of discussing the actual 'color' material rather than the light waves hitting it, I also stand by what I said--and I certainly may have mistaken his intention in his 'light' reference. Bruce, as I've said before, I always thoroughly enjoy and appreciate your comments on things and am so pleased you are sharing with us! Thanks!
