Abstract: Object appearance involves all visual aspects, namely colour,<br />gloss, shape, texture, shininess, haze, transparency, etc. Wavelength-specific<br />light phenomena are responsible for colour, while geometric or directional<br />selectivity is primarily responsible for gloss, translucency and<br />similar attributes. The geometric attributes, namely diffuse reflectance<br />and transmittance, affect the colour of an object significantly.<br />Various geometric and colour attributes and their assessment methods<br />are discussed. Colour combination schemes and their emotional aspects<br />are explained.
