Local color (visual art)
In painting, the term Local color refers to the natural color of an object unmodified by adding light and shadow or any other distortion. Local color is best seen on a matte surface, due to it not being reflected, and therefore distorted.
In Fine Art Realism, this refers to the color the brain perceives an object to be. For example, an apple is red.
