RGB Colour Printing and Halftoning for the Reproduction of Structural Colour ImagesCommercial CMYK halftone printing involves additive and subtractive colour mixing that requires the optical mixing of primary colour hues using different-sized dots to obtain variations in reflected colour.
Dr. Carinna Parraman is Professor of Design, Colour and Print and Director of the Centre for Print Research, at the University of the West of England, Bristol. As Director of CFPR, she leads a cross-disciplinary research team comprising expertise including scientists and technologists, designers and artists. The CFPR group are exploring the future of printing and fabrication, new ways of thinking and working alongside traditional methods of making. Her work spans art and science, including colour mixing, colour printing, texture appearance and photomechanical printing processes. She collaborates with different sectors, including industry, heritage and fine art print. Her print practice explores colour mixing of patterns, elements and halftones that dazzle and vibrate. She is experimenting with using RGB pigments on black paper to create new colour appearances. She is also a collector of paint colour charts and real-world colours #colouraday.
The Inter-Society Color Council advances the knowledge of color as it relates to art, science, industry and design.
Each of these fields enriches the others, furthering the general objective of color education.
