  • @AlvinPineda I understand what you are saying, but I am not referring to wavelengths. I am talking about what we SEE. Sunlight appears as yellow, which is why artists have always painted it that way.

  • @daxxtr Yep, sorry but I was referring to the sunlight being yellow. it doesn't work that way, anything above violet is ultra violet, not magenta. and anything below red spectrum is infrared. Both invisible to the human eye. Don't get me wrong, I love your work about color theory. it helped me a lot. :)

  • You are referring to light science. The YouTube video you quoted is also speaking about light science. I am talking about pigment and since we can see it in nature, artists should include it in their palette.

  • This is wrong. There is no magenta light wave.
    it is a mixture of red PLUS violet(additive colours). The shortest and the longest light wave length.

  • I get your point but ff you are mixing paint then everything you are saying is wrong. The other model is completely valid in that instance.

  • The term “white light” is actually a misnomer.
