Why is black considered a Shade?
there's two different ways or models of 'making' colors.
1) its called additive. You can do this with your watercolor-box. you have a white background. then you add colors. there's three base colors. blue, magenta and yellow. you mix those to get any other color. if you put in the right amount of all your colors you get black.
2) is called subtractive. You have a dark place. You add light. You can do this with lamps. Your computer-screen does this. again, there's three base colors. red, green and blue. you mix those to get different colors. if you have all your lights shine with the right intensity, you get white. you can break white light into different colors with a prism. the absence of light is black.
so black and white are - depending on the color model you use - either all colors at once or no color at all. gray is also a shade. in additive color model its 'black stuff, but not dense enough to cover the white completely' in subtractive its 'white light but not bright enough to shine away all the black'
here I go into color theory... black is not a color, it is a nutral. it is considered the absence of all color, white is the presence of all color (example of this: white light being seperated through a glass prisim, although true white can not be created again once seperated in art). every color has different values, a value is the shade of that color and every color can reach either a shade of white or of black on its value scale. this is why black is considered a shade. hope this helped!if you have any more color theory or art related questions, just ask me! I love studying this stuff!
its because you cant technically see the colour black true black is when there is absolutely no light but if there is no light then you cant see anything so technically if you can the colour itis a shade of black rather than true black
hope that helps my mate just told me and I dot undersand ou might not :)
In the scale of colors, it starts at black, and Black is said to be no color at all, and then it goes threw all the colors and ends at white, which is appearently all the colors in one, but who knows:)

but I have no idea why its considered a shade
