Color is hard to talk about correctly. If you’re reading this, video creator, since you asked at the end, this was very well done. Really, really good. Thanks for distinguishing magenta. Thanks for discussing both the additive and subtractive color models. Thanks for going over a few mathematical ways to describe color (RGB, HSB, etc). Thanks for mentioning photoreceptors and the visual cortex, how colors appear differently in different environments, and how color is an event. Thanks for mixing paints!

I would include this as part of an introduction to color theory.

If you were to make a V2, I’d suggest discussing gray, since I’m sure you’d find a way to make gray interesting (I mean it is though) :)
