Hues cluster. This effect may be a function of the propensity of the eye and brain to make primary distinctions between colors. When grouped in an expanded visual field, individual hues tend to organize so that reds are visually connected to reds, blues to blues. It may be that the combining of hues according to like kind is the result of an opponent-response system in vision.
