Thanks for your answer. The second part is particularly, interesting, although I'd be interested in more detail about the "perceptual guessing" and how it might relate dark yellow. Google isn't really helping me out there. Too much general and technical information; not much focused on this question. I think the first part of your question is responding to some of the other answers — I don't think I ever claimed that brown is dark yellow although I understand why some might apply the term "brown" to the muddy sort of color that results from darkening yellow.

Yes, I think that the author ignores the impact of linguistics and culture on colour-naming. See for example the word "pink" Okay, yeah, this steers me to a helpful clarification.
The question is: what is special about these particular colors in regards to brightness and darkness? The suggestion that it's individual to each color bad fruit, in your example is one possibility, but since these are opposed colors, I can't help but think that there's something more to it than that.
FFFF00 is yellow red and green primary and is olive, which codes as dark yellow. But it looks green. I don't think people ever identified it as yellow, so I don't think the special name because of the fruit is true. There is indeed a "light violet" occuring naturally -- cobalt arsenide, as Cobalt Violet Light, is familiar to oil painters as one of those unbelievably expensive pigments that can't really be replaced by mixing. Try as you might to arrive at the same tone using either thing glazes or mixing with white, you can never get quite the same optical properties.
I wasted more on the pallette than I ever used in a painting, but used pure and strategically, it was irreplaceable. I guess my wording doesn't portray what I was trying to say. Its a linguistic distinction, rather than a color distinction. I know what you mean exactly , and that's why CVL is so worth the money when you use it right -- the mind tries to perceive it as a muted, pinky tone, but it just can't do it. Well, not until a couple of decades down the road when the binding oils yellow to the point that it's just another light purply blob, anyway.
On secondary colors — the use of primary and secondary in the quote is, I think, conceptual, not scientific. Brown isn't a secondary color in that sense, but think what you'd get in a box of 12 crayons.
Color can become a very complex thing when you involve the non-deterministic nature of human thought and organization. Brown is indeed a secondary color from an interior design perspective, and also from a graphic design perspective. Its often a muted highlight color or a base color upon which brighter or more vibrant highlight colors are placed. Thats why this really boils down to language and culture, more than science, and thoroughly demonstrates the complexity of color.
Because they have their own names. That's why. These are my interpretations of these variants: Dark yellow is simply known by brown. Robert Koritnik Robert Koritnik 1, 2 2 gold badges 14 14 silver badges 28 28 bronze badges. So, I guess, that's not an answer, that's the question.
I'd also say that pink is light red, but light violet is magenta Brown is desaturated orange, not yellow. Hue is 30 degrees, not Where do you get pink as violet? Pink is light red. Magenta is called hot pink in fashion but is not pink and not vilot either since it's not a spectral color. RowlandShaw violet is a spectral color the highest , but magenta is non-spectral, meaning it is only possible as a chord and does not represent a frequency in the rainbow.
Violet is what turns the color progression into a circle since the Long cone is slightly sensitive to what is nominally extreme blue. I think it's not only a difference between people in perception but in language as well. What you call different dyes when not usingnscientific names or measurements can vary a lot.
