Ansel Adams would disagree.

Does Artisto refer to artists in the general sense, or just painters/sculptors?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/verballyinsane

As far as I can tell, it works the same as it does in English, referring to all types of artists.

Does that include people who work in "the arts" - musicians, writers, actors, etc.?

Tio pravas. Mi ĉiam deziras plibonigi mia uzado de kolora teorio.

Kio pri la kolorblindaj artistoj?

still wishing this unfortunate false friend to English would not exist…

What false friend?

Perhaps he doesn't want to be reminded of "The artist ❤❤❤❤ colours."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sarefo

yes; I try not to, but sxatas and fartas bother me…


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/salivanto

Wow. in two decades of speaking Esperanto, I never made a connection between these sxatas and any English word.

Poor Ray Charles :(

Not according to him, being blind allowed him to "see" the world in a unique way.

Couldn't it be just "Artists like color."? Since in English, color can refer to all colors, and color in general?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aventurulo

Koloro would be a specific colour, like Red or Blue.

Koloraro would be the colour spectrum.

Koloreco is the the concept of colour


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/salivanto

IMHO that's a stretch. YMMV.

Sango-pentristo nur pentras en ruĝa.

The best artist I've ever personally known was totally colorblind, everything was in black and white. I usually drove.
