Come on, how many artists do you know who will have enough of a
background in mathematics and physics to have a hope of doing that?

You might as well tell a bunch of engineering students that they need to
consider the interaction between the æsthetics of composition and
socio-political emotive responses.

The overlap is non-zero, some do have a hope, but it's not OK to make it
into a barrier.

I think Yahvuu's suggestion is accurate; your implication of his meaning
is a bit off the mark. The way an artistic individual could decide about
the "actually implemented math" is by experience, not analysis. Which
blend mode "looks best", to the artist, is meaningful.
