Other Parameters

**kwargs (dict, optional) – {colour.plotting.artist(), colour.plotting.diagrams.plot_spectral_locus(), colour.plotting.diagrams.plot_chromaticity_diagram_colours(), colour.plotting.render()}, Please refer to the documentation of the previously listed definitions.

Returns

Current figure and axes.
