Affecting Colour Appearance by Surround Field and Stimuli Sizes
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2006.14.1.art00035  Published OnlineJanuary 2006

This study investigates the effects of the size of stimuli, the size and the luminance lever of the surround field on colour appearance under various viewing conditions. Ten phases of psychophysical experiments were conducted to obtain visual data assessed by a panel of 10-15 observers. The viewing conditions investigated include three different sizes of stimuli, two sizes of surround field, three viewing distances, two luminance level of surround. It was found that the colourfulness was increased for large surround fields (or small display fields), and a lightness and colourfulness increase for large viewing angle of stimuli, especially for dark colours. The results were used to reveal colour appearance under different viewing conditions. The visual results were also used to test the CIE colour appearance model, CIECAM02. In general, so far CIECAM02 gave a satisfactory prediction.
