If you look at a piece of fabric from different angles the color changes. More obviously a fabric piece with a nap to it, is easier to see the change. With different lighting there again seems to be a change in color. Thread has a nap or more accurately a warp, so when the angle or lighting is changed there is a slight difference in the way the eye sees it, as you have stated. I have no idea if there is a name for the way the angles and light makes the thread look different but I think “thread painting” would be a somewhat close. What do you think?
Often I see designs that appear to have the colors all wrong.
Might be photography or how my monitor displays the image.
Examples female cardinals are not red,
shade flowers usually have blue green leaves [usually a key word]
(Daily sun exposure takes the blue color away first time of season key),
Lighting at the time they are viewed very different morning light tends to have greater blue spectrum,
afternoon greater orange spectrum.
When you talk about color I always go to see a real [bird, bug, flower, tree]
before I commit to a thread shade.
I have found it very interesting the way the thread color changes by the angle the stitches are placed.
One color of thread appears to be several colors.
What is that sort of digitizing called?
