is anyone on here colour blind or know someone who is colour blind...

i've been interested lately to do a set of paintings of what a colour blind person would see but i am unsure of what things looks like to them exactly...

do they just see black and white or is it lots of different shades of greys or maybe even some diffused colour or something...

anyone know?

It depends on the person. Some people are completely colourblind (black and white), some are blue/yellow colourblind (i.e. they confuse blue and yellow), but the most common is red/green colourblind. I have dated a number of colourblind guys in the past... (it's more common than you'd think) They were all red/green colourblinds... my first bf indicated that he basically saw red, green and brown as all the same colour. It wasn't black or white, I guess he just saw them all as brown.

How would a colour blind person no how to describe your paintings as acurate if they have never seen colours?

apparantly if you were colour-blind in the army it was good to know... bad for you though.. you'd be put on point on treks through the woods.. apparantly you can see in the dark better.. see movement or something..

i know that is the hard part.....a friend of mine is colour blind and the only thing he ever said to me to describe it was "dull and lifeless"
i thought maybe if someone had studied it, or knew something about it...
silvershadows reply helped...

Right here.


I don't think I am as severe as some though.

What I get, is some colors just don't register. I'll see it, but I won't be able to tell you what it is.

I also get green/brown...orange/yellow.....blue/purple....similiar base colors, easily confused.

Been like that my entire life.

No big deal, I can tell red from green so I was ok getting my drivers license.

weird. it's such a strange concept to grasp for someone who sees all the colours. although, i've often wondered if there are more colours, we just can't see them cause we're measly humans.

have you not been able to teach yourself to differentiate between the colours?

Deuteranopia (one out of 100 males):
The deuteranope suffers the same hue discrimination problems as the protanope, but without the abnormal dimming. The names red, orange, yellow, and green really mean very little to him aside from being different names that every one else around him seems to be able to agree on. Similarly, violet, lavender, purple, and blue, seem to be too many names to use logically for hues that all look alike to him.

You still would've been able to get it regardless... traffic lights are set up so colourblind people can tell which one is on.

For instance, in horizontal lights, red ones are always square, and there are two of them, whereas green is round and amber is diamond. As for vertical lights, the red light is always on top, and green at the bottom.

Hmmm...good question.


Yes and no?

If I am shown something that is close to another color, I really think about it before I answer what I think it is, rather then just say the first thing that comes to mind.

In kindergarten I thought my cat was gold, boy did I get mocked for that one!

:D

In between colors though, they just don't register, it's like someone speaking a language you don't understand.

I raised a few eyebrows as a child, being "Gifted" on one line and then "Color Blind" on the next.

Yeah right......you know how many "specialists" I was taken to as a child? not a single explanation was ever given???

Wait till my mother hears this one.

Just use red where you would green and vice versa.
It's not a matter of say looking at a frog and it looks red to you. It's that both colours will look identical to you, generally sort of a mix between the two (such as brown).

It's because a lack of cones (the part of the eye that allows you to see colours).

Males are a lot more likely to be colourblind than women, because the colourblind gene is located in the X chromozome, which men only have one of, whereas women have 2... which means that women are more often carriers than colourblind (in order for the woman to be colourblind, both her X chromozomes would have to be affected).

<-- bottomless pit of info on colourblindness (yes, I did a report in high school)

my bro is slightly colourblind in that grey, beige, cream, black, navy and brown all look the same to him.
as a result, he dresses in comically bright clothes.
and hes always wearing the wrong socks.

not exactly a fashion maven.

i think about this a lot. i have dreams sometimes, where aliens come and the sky opens up in this really insane display of colours that we could have never comprehended...but i don't know how i can see them in my dream. cuz i can't recall them in the morning. i just know that what i am seeing in my dream is completely unlike anything i've seen in my waking reality.

yah...it's would be hard to imagine what those colours really are, cause we can't see them. i guess that's kinda like what being colour blind is.
