Reflectance models such as the monochrome Murray-Davies (MD) and the Neugebauer color equations make inaccurate predictions owing to changes in reflectance or tristimulus values (TSVs) of halftone dots and the paper between the dots. In this paper, we characterize the change of micro-TSVs as a function of printed area in spectral halftone image by a power function and compare its prediction efficiency using theoretically and experimentally measured limiting TSVs assuming dots of uniform thickness. We found that experimentally accounting for dot thickness variations as solid and mixed areas more precisely explained the single-model parameter that captured the observed lateral light scattering effect. The results showed that incorporating empirically modeled TSVs of the dots and the paper between dots, as well as introducing a new term addressing mixed area in the MD equation, produced CIE Delta E-ab* in the range 1.22-1.76, and the overall gain was more than 1 Delta E-ab*.
