Deeper Shades of Grey
There's something about greys that draw me to create with them.
They contain all the colors, like life. Blue grey, green grey, pink grey even brown grey.
"The question is better stated as how many different shades of gray (i.e., varying intensities or “brightnesses” along the neutral axis) can be distinguished by typical human vision. The answer to that can’t be given precisely, as it depends on a number of factors including the sensitivity of the individual in question, but it’s going to be somewhere in the range of a few hundred to somewhat over a thousand at best. This assumes, however, that the different intensities are not just linearly spaced, which isn’t the optimum way to encode gray levels."
