Chromatic Color or Hue.  
All colors other than the neutral colors as black, white and real gray are chromatic.


Apples are Red, lemons are Yellow and the sky is Blue. 
That's how we think of color in everyday language. 


The Hue as the attribute of color perception by means of which an Object is judged; 
to be Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple.

The Hue is the property of light by which the color of 
an Object is classified as Red, Yellow or Blue 
in reference to the spectrum. 

Or as a gradation or variety of a color. 
Or as the Rainbow color, just like 
all the Hue's of the Rainbow



The Hue is the term used in the world of color for the classification of Red, Yellow, Green etc. 
Also, although Red and Yellow are two completely 
different, mixing both results is Orange. 
( Orange is sometimes referred to as Yellow-Red )


The continuum of these results in the color wheel
