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