As to the Shades of... article, that's purely based on physics, not on perception. Any mix of yellow and red is a shade of orange, and any mix of the three primary colours is a shade of brown or grey.

Chan eil e gu diofar a thaobh na thuirt mi, dh'obraicheadh an dà chuid. Dh'obraicheadh fiù 's cyan, magenta agus buidhe nam biodh tu a' cleachdadh am model CMYK.

Tha dè an seòrsa donn a gheibh thu a' crochadh air dè cho làidir 's a th' anns gach fear agus is dòcha gum faigh thu glas.

:chafhios:

Tha mi air bruidhinn air na gheibh tu a thaobh saidheans co-dhiù seach ciamar a bhios na daoine a' faicinn nan dathan anns na diofar cànanan.

Chunnaic mi dealbh inntinneach o chionn ghoirid. Saoil am bidh i feumail don deasbad a tha seo?

Tha mi air bruidhinn air na gheibh tu a thaobh saidheans co-dhiù seach ciamar a bhios na daoine a' faicinn nan dathan anns na diofar cànanan.


Cha robh mi eòlach air Theory of Colours le Goethe ach leugh mi an t-aiste agus tha e coimhead dhomhsa gu bheil ùidh aige ciamar a bhios daoine a' faicinn nan dathan, ged am b' e sin saidheans cuideachd mar a chunnaic e sin. Ach eadhon nam biodh gach measgachadh de Gelb, Rot is Blau a' cruthachadh tuar de Brün no Grau, cha chreid mi gum biodh sin a' ciallachadh gum feumadh gach measgachadh de bhuidhe, dhearg is ghorm tuar de dhonn no ghlas a chruthachadh, mar a tha na Gàidheil a' tuigsinn nam faclan.

Agus ma thuirt e "that in my century I am the only person who knows the truth in the difficult science of colours – of that, I say, I am not a little proud" gu dearbh, mur e sin droch eadar-theangachadh... Chan eil earbsa mhòr agam ann an duine sam bith a tha ag ràdh gur e "an aon phearsa a tha eòlach air an fhìrinn mu dheidhinn rudeigin" a tha ann... :-s

Nach ann cunnartach a tha aithisgean mar seo. Tha làn fhios againn an-diugh gun robh e ceàrr. 'S e Blau, Rot is Grün a tha na dathan de sealladh mac an duine...
