The colours of optimism and magic
Colour in art is a fascinating thing, especially when you start to delve into the world of colour psychology and look at the effect that particular colours can have on emotions and behaviour.
Yellow is linked to emotion. It’s a colour of happiness and optimism, and of emotional strength and self-esteem. It can lift our spirits and inspire our creativity.
Violet is linked to spirituality. It’s a colour of magic and of time and space. It can inspire contemplation, awareness and vision.
So our brightly coloured girl evokes the essence of spring for me. It’s a time of optimism. A time to dream and be inspired. A time to let our spirits soar and to believe in magic.
P.S. If you’re interested in colour psychology there’s lots of information out there. I’ve found Colour Affects and Color Matters particularly interesting and helpful. They’re the primary sources for this post.
