"I have always been inspired by vibrant, bold colors. I cannot imagine a colorless world." ~Shirley Monestier
~The Psychology of Color in Logo Design
I have always been inspired by color; I chose the colors for my website and blog because they are vibrant and bold and grab the eye. In this image, you see the colors I chose:
Yellow: optimism, clarity, warmth
Orange: friendly, cheerful, confidence
Red: excitement, youthful, bold
Color Psychology is the science of determining which colors evoke specific emotions or behaviors. Are there colors that make you happy, or sad, or calm, or hungry? That's color psychology!
Some artists known for their bold use of color:
Piet Mondrian: Composition with Red, Yellow, Blue and Black
Georgia O'Keeffe: From the Plains II
Ken O'Neill: Mondrian Signal
Diego Rivera: Portrait of Sra. Dona Elena Flores
Roy Lichtenstein: In The Car
Willem de Kooning: Untitled
