Color Theory and Practice
For most of the history of art, color was thought of as unknowable, the province of only a gifted few. While great colorists might be born, an artist can gain an intimate knowledge of color space by understanding the three attributes of color…hue, value and chroma…and practice mixing each.
A painter in his own right, Albert Munsell (1858-1918) used the terms hue, value and chroma in his numerical system of color naming. A numerical system, he thought, was more precise than the traditional names of color like ochre, crimson and ultramarine.
For example, he would describe a certain yellow not as yellow ochre, but as 10YR 5/6 where 10YR is the hue, 5 is the value and 6 is the chroma.
