Color.red, Color.green, Color.cyan etc are all static variables declared in the class Color.
Hence
Color.red.green.cyan
is same as (Color.red).green.cyan
is same as Color.green.cyan ---> Color.red is of type Color
is same as (Color.green).cyan ---> Color.green is of type Color
is same as Color.cyan
Hope that helps,
Ajith
