Does someone here have at hand a reference on the web for color
nomenclature or vocabulary, with examples and derivation? There
should be somewhere a comparative list of colors with their reference
'chips,' along with historical or syntactic names, such as burnt
sienna, cadmium yellow, cobalt blue, royal blue, navy blue, etc.
and how they were derived.
There would be inherent limits to the vocabulary as traditionally
these color names were applied to subtractive rather than additive
color processes... but perhaps there are allowances made for the
different processes in the application of names.
thanks in advance.
