- Glossary definition: Hue

The name of any colour as found in its pure state in the spectrum or rainbow, or that aspect of any colour. May refer to a particular wavelength. Pigment colours combine differently than colours of light. The primary colours (in pigment: red, yellow, and blue; in light: red, green, and blue) together with the secondary colours (in pigment: orange, green, and violet; in light: cyan, magenta, and yellow) form the chief colours of the spectrum.
