Weekly Photo Challenge: ROY G. BIV (Parrot)

_W5A5966 ROV

In Classical Antiquity, Aristotle claimed there was a fundamental scale of seven basic colors. In the Renaissance, several artists tried to establish a new sequence of up to seven primary colors from which all other colors could be mixed. In line with this artistic tradition, Newton divided his color circle, which he constructed to explain additive color mixing, into seven colors. His color sequence including the tertiary color indigo is kept alive today by the Roy G. Biv mnemonic. Originally he used only five colors, but later he added orange and indigo, in order to match the number of musical notes in the major scale. — Wikipedia

  1. Thanks for sharing that bit of info, Amy. I didn’t know orange and indigo were added to match musical notes in the major scale. Fascinating. And beautiful photo for this week’s challenge. I love the bird. It’s so cute and this photo was nicely captured. Hope you’re having a good weekend 🙂
