White is Not the Absence of Colour by atnezau White is Not the Absence of Colour by atnezau
White is Not The Absence of Colour

Ok, so in the "subtractive" colour theory, white, technically is the absence of colour. What I'm tyring to bring across is how white is under-appreciated as a colour - there are people who like to mention how they would prefer "less white" or "no white" in the background for contests, etc - And I want to change the perception that white is an ugly lack of colour >.<

Nothing's wrong with using a rainbow of colours, just remember that white needs some love too :heart:

:iconeweplz: Inspired by this? Have a picture dedicated to appreciating white as a colour? Tell me and I'll link you here! Link this piece on your art to tell others that white is a colour too! :dummy:

:la: What are you waiting for? Go forth and CREATE!

I would have thought that black was the absence of colour..

Depends on what colour theory you're referring to.

For subtractive colour mixing, (where the primary colours are Red, Blue & Yellow, which is applied to pigments), white is the absence of colour, and black is the sum of all the primary colours.

For additive colour mixing (where the primary colours are Red, Blue & Green, which is applied to light), white is the sum of the primary colours, and black is the absence of colour.
