The Science of Vision

I was researching peripheral vision and found this really neat website,
Color, Vision, and Art.

This web exhibit discusses and explains many optical phenomena in art and allows the viewer to alter the luminence and hue of paintings to see the effects.

Katherine,

Thanks for the link. That is indeed a very cool site. I've always had an appreciation for great art, but I would never be able to tell you what it is about a particular piece of art that moves me. And all my attempts to produce art have fallen flat.

I'm glad you liked it. I can't always tell what I like about certain artwork either, and though I have a great time trying to figure it out, I really enjoy the mystery too.
