In this Letter, a new methodology for Colour Shape From Shading problem is proposed. The problem of colour SFS refers to the well-known fact that most real objects usually contain mixtures of diffuse and specular colour reflections. In this paper, these limitations are addressed and a new colour neural based model is proposed. The proposed approach focuses on developing a generalized neural based colour reflectance model. Experimental results on synthetic coloured objects and a real coloured object were performed to demonstrate the performance of the proposed methodology.
