HOW WE SEE COLOR

reflected_light

Light is filled with color. When light hits an object, part of the light is absorbed and part is reflected. The color that the object appears to have, is the color of light it REFLECTS back to our eyes. BUT...When light goes directly from its source (for example your computer screen) to our eyes, color works a little differently.
