Carnovsky's RGB Filtered Art vs. Leonardo da Vinci

So essentially what this kind of art does it hide or obscure certain images within each other that are only fully revealed when a certain color light is applied. This is just one of the types or artistic techniques I found that Leonardo implemented in his art. This will be explained further in my book!

"RGB’s technique consists in the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary color. The resulting images from this three level’s superimposition are unexpected and disorienting. The colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear. Through a colored filter (a light or a transparent material) it is possible to see clearly the layers in which the image is composed. The filter’s colors are red, green and blue, each one of them serves to reveal one of the three layers."

Quotes by Leonardo da Vinci:

"The hue of an illuminated object is affected by that of the luminous body.

The surface of any opaque body is affected by the colour of surrounding objects.

A shadow is always affected by the colour of the surface on which it is cast.

An image produced in a mirror is affected by the colour of the mirror.

Every portion of the surface of a body is varied [in hue] by the [reflected] colour of the object that may be opposite to it."
