Their is a slight difference. Color is more objective: the apples are red, green, yellow, and pink, etc. Coloring is a little more subjective, or is a little more descriptive, bringing out the slight nuances of hue or tint. When describing the coloring of something, you are being a little more "poetic."

There is a difference. Some examples will make it clear. Colour 1. What colour is your new car? It is blue. 2. What colour is her dress? It is red. Colouring 3. The colouring of his complexion suggests that he has put on a sheer layer of reflector base. 4. The colouring of this dress (meaning the whole scheme of colours) points to inspiration from Balinese culture. 5.

When you refer to "the coloring" it's like asking or saying something about what color something is, without saying the actual color. For instance: What is its coloring? Its coloring is red. You could also say "What is its color?" So yes, the two are alike!
