• Objects have no colour of their own. They actually have the ability to reflect rays of white light, which is what actually contains all of the colours.
  • For example, a blue object will absorb all of the white rays except the blue ones, and these are the rays reflected to our eyes. Blue is therefore the colour we see.
  • Black objects absorb all the rays. White objects reflect all the rays.
  • The significance of this is the understanding that as light changes, colour also changes. (Think about how the colour of something appears to change in daylight compared to twilight.)
