Spanish term or phrase:sincronía cromática
Description of a restoration of a 16th century mural: "analizamos el conjunto de pinturas de esta sala como una sincronía cromática, buscando un color y tono con un valor general medio para usarlo como base de preparación común para todas las áreas." ANd later: "el mortero a base de cal y polvo de mármol, en su variedad de impalpable (1:1), se coloreó, como ya dijimos, después de realizar una asincronía cromática del tono general de las pinturas". I'm very confused and can't seem to find any references to "chromatic sychrony" particularly when the first ref is 'sincronía' and the second 'asincronía' (mistake?), but have come across "multispectral image processing" - is this the same thing?
1) a synchronous chromatic range 2) after splitting this single colour back down into its components
Explanation: Here is an example of the use of "chromatic range" (range of colours), extracted from the link:
"9. The basic colours...
· Are the blue, the yellow and the red
· Are the red, the green and the blue
· And the additional ones give us the whole chromatic range
· Are used during the printing process"
In your context, "sincronía cromática" I think refers to a process of harmonizing the different colours of the paintings in the hall into a single one that is in the middle of the chromatic range (colour range); and "asincronía cromática" I think refers to the opposite process - that of splitting this single colour back down into all the colours of the range: "después de realizar una asincronía cromática del tono general de las pinturas" > after splitting this single tone (of the paintings) back down into its components
