Lighting Changes Colors

If you look at an object in different lights its color may change a lot. To carefully describe an object's color you have to say what kind of light you're shining on it. People who study colors use many different kinds of lights. Some are like the sun, while others are more like light bulbs or fluorescent lamps.

This can lead to some interesting results when you try to match colors.
