At Grackle Studio we organize our chips differently. We organize them by Hue, Value and Chroma. Hue is the color you picked above. Each Hue is further broken down into four numeric units. For example, a Red family is broken down further into 2.5 R, 5 R, 7.5 R and 10 R. A yellow is broken down into 2.5 Y, 5 Y, 7.5 Y, 10 Y etc. Each color has a Value and Chroma.
Let’s look at an example.
2.5 GY 8/10
Hue is 2.5 GY or Green Yellow. The value is 8 and the chroma is 10.
Green Yellow is placed in color space between Yellow and Green. If we divide green yellow into four sections, 2.5GY is closer to Yellow than Green.
Value compares dark to light on a scale of 1-9. The darkest value is 1 and the lightest value is 9.
Chroma measures intensity or saturation of color. It ranges from 2-16 in intervals of two for eg 2. 4, 8 etc.
In summary, 2.5 GY 8/10 is a green that is very yellowish, light and quite saturated.
