The microstate theory of color supports that colors exist as microstructures on the surface of an object, rather than existing as a characteristic automatically…

I imagine a landscape to be sunny and have a pretty sky with bright colors such as reds, oranges, and yellows. Also, I imagine buildings and homes to be in a landscape. To add, green grass and rolling hills would be beautiful in a landscape. Basically, I think of a landscape to make someone feel happy.
