Exploring colors, palettes and patterns that have all sorts of relationships with the Fibonacci Sequence.

What makes a color a Fibonacci color?

I wonder how #212121 compares with RGB 21/21/21, etc…

I see lots of colors here with Fibonacci in the title, but arrived at via different thoughts and reasoning. Would love to hear what those thoughts are!
I am curious to know whether nature in fact follows this pattern with color as it does with form. It's all about proportion, which I hope and imagine would show up no matter what we use to measure those colors…
ooh, that picture is interesting. It makes me think of about fibonnaci gradient where you have a specified color step, and the gradient points are spread out along the fib.sequence gradually getting farther apart. Will have to tinker later.

I doubt nature gives a damn about RGB, HEX, etc. as they only have meaning for human eyes.. you're right, it's about the distance between things... Perhaps using a physics system and going by the actual wavelength of colors would show a more interesting pattern?
Also…

This is more of an "inspired by" Fibonacci palette -- a quick mental sketch from my impressions of that hallway:

sero*, I looked at your links (I think, most of them) and still don't feel like I've gotten to the bottom of this. The wavelength converter gave back odd results or no results (many values returned 0, 0, 0). I plan to be outside in nature today with a camera and will have this mystery in mind :-)
