I have loved looking at colo(u)rs I don't know about anyone else, but here are some resources anyway
A search of 'colo(u)r converter' will return results for converters if ever you need. Here are other resources that I've come across.
These graphics pretty much sum up the color theory links in the rest of the page:
These are other links are things you can read through.
This covers basics and some associations that people might have with colo(u)r that you can use for design and branding.
This seems to cover a broader part and history of color theory if you want to browse through:
I have heard another interpretation, that colour is just something that is perceived by us.
EDIT: wait, I should have read more closely. This article was suggesting that the publishing of the following experiment was not valid...
The documentary names Serge Caparos as the experimenter, and we see him and hear him running the experiment and discussing the results. But as far as I can tell, searching for Serge Caparos Himba color again leaves us without any publication that describes the experiment we're looking for.
1. The experiment was abandoned because it failed, or because serious design flaws turned up in the review process; or
2. The experiment was abandoned because the author(s) went on to other things, or couldn't write it up for personal reasons; or
3. The experiment has been published, but my search techniques were unable to find it.
Whatever the explanation, I submit that the BBC documentary (and the subsequent coverage) has given us a sensationalist interpretation of an undocumented experiment, presented as reliable science, without giving us any basis to trust that this interpretation is even close to true.
Okay, I should include that, but I will leave the ideas in it for just posing something to think about more philosophically about our perception of colour, whether this experiment is accurate or not.
So the apparent experiment was that, in a certain language (I can't remember the name of it) they use a single word for describing blue/green (I do know that there is at least another language that does this too but it wasn't mentioned for this example) but they have different words for describing similar shades of green (which, for English, would all be called green).
And apparently there was a study done where they asked speakers of that language and speakers of other English (I think) to identify a blue square amongst a ring of green squares, and a different shade-of-green square among the green square. They could not distinguish the blue circle from the other greens, but could distinguish the slightly-different green to the other greens, but for English speakers it was the opposite.
I may have reported this not completely accurately because I can't remember To fix that, I searched it up again (and wow it mentioned that blue and black/white and gold dress that I had completely forgotten about until now)
(If you were interested, I cannot distinguish the slightly-different green from the other greens )
I can get carried away very easily which I already have, but if I link that, I can't not link these videos:
Okay I really like this list of colour palettes even though I haven't used it in Hopscotch yet specifically because I keep forgetting it:
I think it can be pretty handy in general although the colours use HEX (an alternative representation of RGB), but that can be converted into RGB/HSB
There is a Crayola colour list here for a range of HSB/RGB values you can use...
There is also a random 5-color palette generator:
This has some more details on the maths behind deriving HSB from RGB (i didn't have a total understanding of it but can still use it for conversions from one to another ):
Adobe Capture is a handy app for selecting and generating colour palettes from images:
Adobe Capture CC – Create Digital Assets by Adobe
Okay I think that is heaps now...
P.S. sorry about my switching of spellings everywhere (I learnt Australian English, then have been around a lot of American English spellings, so I just included both – a bit randomly which goes against being consistent . I also like looking at linguistics and grammar but after this topic here , maybe that's for another time...)
