Brown generally dominates other colors. But the genetics of eye color are more complicated than previously thought. Color is determined by multiple genes. The genetics of eye color are so complex, that almost any parent-child combination of eye colors can occur.

What is crossed handeye dominance?

Crossed hand-eye dominance means that your hand dominance (whether you are left or right handed) differs from your eye dominance (whether your mind prefers the visual information from one eye over that of the other). Typically dominance agrees-- If you are left handed, you will also be left-eye dominant -- though crossed hand-eye dominance is not that uncommon.

How do you explain the principle of dominance?

The Principle of Dominance explains that if there is both a dominant and a recessive allele in an organism, the dominant gene will be the one observed. For example, pea plant flowers are either white or purple. If a pea plant had both a white color allele and a purple color allele, only the purple will be shown. Therefore, the purple is dominant. Another example is eye color in humans. The brown eye color is dominant to the blue eye color. Therefore, the brown eyes gene will mask the blue eyes gene.

That depends on what color eyes you possess. Hazel eyes are. Blue or brown are not. I know this at 13 due to a great science teacher!!

What is the definition of dominance in fine art?

Dominance is not Prominence or Contrast. Dominance has to do with how much area is covered by the characteristics of Shape, Direction, Color, Color, Value, Texture and Size. For example, a painting may have a gray dominance, but hold a bright, saturated color for contrast to hold the eye at the center of interest. Dominance is necessary for contrast and unity and is achieved through repetition and/or size. For a painting to have "Shape Dominance" one need only look at the character of the shapes which overwhelm the picture space, be they geometric, or organic. While unity is the goal to achieve in a painting (or novel, or poem, or music) a dominant theme must be present, which lends itself to the outcome in overall mood (or emotional content) of the art.

What is incomplete or co-dominance?

Incomplete dominance is when both the dominant gene and recessive gene are present in an organism's phenotype. For example, since brown eyes are dominant and blue eyes are recessive in humans, a person who has incomplete dominance of eye color would have gray or green eyes; a mixture of both brown and blue. Codominance is when two dominant alleles are present at the same time. These two terms are not the same!
