It is rainbow week. So they started us off easy with a tribow.
As I am sure you are aware – rainbows have more than three colours. Perhaps.
My studies have taught me a thing or two about colour so why don’t we consult the experts at this point?
Although color (sic) itself is not a physical property of things in the world, it is related to a physical property.
The apparent color (sic) of a bit of the world is correlated with wavelengths of the wavelengths of the light rays reaching the eye from that bit of the world.
…. color (sic) is the result of the interaction of a physical stimulus with a particular nervous system. (Wolfe et al., 2012, p. 117)
So there you go, a rainbow isn’t really the colours we attribute to it. Rather the construction of an interaction between wavelengths of light and our visual system.
But they are pretty.
Here is the mess I made this time, as it seems to be a focus point of when I craft.
And my reward was a tea and lemon tart. The pastry was delicious. The lemon filling made me make funny faces.
