Example of lambertian material, with a uniform ochre color


This material type follows the Lambertian reflectance model. The apparent brightness of such a surface to an observer is the same regardless of the observer's angle of view. This simple model describes efficiently diffuse surfaces, but more complex models such as Oren-Nayar or Phong will describe better very rough and slightly reflective materials, respectively.
