It's like if you had a deficit in your ability to taste saltiness, you wouldn't put less salt in your food, you would put more. Similarly, if you were more sensitive to salty taste, you would put less salt in your food.
No, because he would not necessarily be aware of the deficit, he would still paint what he sees.
Unless someone was like "Yo, Monet, you need to yellow that shi* UP!" and he would be all "Dawg, it look weird, you crayzeh!"
If he compensated with paint then his painting would look different to his actual view, even to himself.
Fact is, apparently, that he had cataracts which do yellow your vision, so I don't think it was a brain thing at this point, it was just what the program was about.
