EnChroma glasses won’t fix your color blindness | Ars Technica
The much-touted EnChroma glasses don't help color-blind users see new colors, a new study says; they merely enable people to see the same colors in a different way. UW Medicine color-vision expert Jay Neitz is quoted.

A Colorblind Artist? Yes, With a Little Help From His Friends
A Colorblind Artist? Yes, With a Little Help From His Friends
Worried that he couldn’t work as an illustrator, Loren Long hid his “obstacle.” Now it’s out in the open.

Maria Russo. NYTimes. December 23,2017

. . . . .

All your books have many colors in them. How do you do that?

I work with tubes of paint that have the names on them. I put colors on the palette in a certain order. I know color theory but when I get into a painting it’s very intuitive.

But you can’t know for sure how it looks?

That’s the scary thing. If I’m not careful I could paint brown leaves instead of green. I have to rely on values, and I think because of my colorblindness I have a heightened sense of values — darks, lights and middle tones. Saturation could be another way to describe it. So I have a solid grasp of lighting and lights and darks. I try to establish a strong light source and let value define the picture more than color.
