N2 - RGB-display space, that is, the RGB-cube, was sampled at 3,000 locations, uniformly and randomly distributed. Fifty observers contributed 60 samples each. At each location, participants synthesised a copy of the target, using a generic colour picker. The statistical distributions of errors as a function of location are used to define an overall measure of graininess. A smooth field of interpolated three-dimensional covariance ellipsoids represents an explicit, empirical Riemannian metric. The unit step size is about 20 times larger than the size of the classical MacAdam ellipses. We speculate that this metric might be found useful in various settings involving applications, because it reflects typical fuzziness encountered in generic tasks involving colour patterns such as images. Some of the more obvious applications are discussed.
