What Is The Truth Color Blue?

The truth about the color blue is, it is difficult to say what blue is, or even to point a color out as blue. And this is because there’s no naturally occurring compound of the color.

To better understand this consider a few examples. The colors of plants depend on the dominant compounds they are made of. Most plants are green on account of the compound chlorophyll. And it’s been said that if you eat enough carrots, your skin will take on a shade of orange, which is the color of the compound carotene which carrots contain.

What blue you see in certain animals is not based on any compound but on the external structure of the animal’s body or skin. When the light of a certain wavelength lands on the structure in the animal’s skin or body, it reflects the blue color based on that structure. And some of the blues we see in things around us aren’t actually blue but a shade of purple.

The blue we see in the sky is not caused by any compound or pigment. It is based on the structure formed by particles, gasses, and the way blue light travels.

Now let’s get back to blue paint colors for doors. You now know the front door to your home is very important, and that blue is the chosen color in 2023 for doors. This article will feature some of the best brands like Sherwin Williams, and Benjamin Moore.
