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.

Color is also used in color printing, color photography, color film and color television.

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.

A monochrome image is one that uses only one hue of color, along with tints (mixtures with white) and/or shades (mixtures with black) of that color.

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[edit]

While spanking drawings, comics, and photos are sometimes colored and sometimes not, spanking paintings, videos, and animations are practically always colored.

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)

A visual aspect of spanking is the reddening of the spankee's buttocks. Many spanking artists (e.g. Comixpank or Jay Em) like to depict brightly reddened bottoms.

The Italian Spanking Art Pages have a tutorial on how to realistically digitally redden buttocks in photographs.
